Your mission: find a corner in the world to spend a quiet family vacation, where your children can breathe clean air, understand the importance of protecting Nature, have fun and get to know different species of animals.
The ideal destination that meets those characteristics is called Tortuguero, Costa Rica, located in a country recognized worldwide as an excellent choice for ecological tourism.
Tortuguero, home of the Manatus Hotel, is an area of the Costa Rican Caribbean that was rewarded with an incredible rainforest, vast water canals, the perfect place for doing adventure and ecotourism, a human warmth difficult to find elsewhere and hundreds of animal species.
5 reasons for staying at Manatus while vacationing in Tortuguero
1. SPAWNING AND NESTING OF TURTLES IN TORTUGUERO
Twice a year (March-June and July-October) in Tortuguero takes place an event that attracts hundreds of tourists of several nationalities: the spawning and nesting of the Green and Baula turtles.
The turtles, in an unprecedented visual spectacle, leave the sea and take the beaches of Tortuguero in search of the perfect place to dig nests and lay their eggs. When visiting the Manatus Hotel this will be a perfect activity to teach your children the importance of taking care of the beaches, so marine animals like the turtles can continue their reproduction.
2. THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE LIVE, HUNDREDS OF EXOTIC ANIMALS
In Tortuguero we ran into the rainforest, hills, swamps, beaches, rivers, water canals and lagoons, habitats where more than 400 bird species share the spaces with crocodiles, tapirs, manatees, iguanas, three-toed sloths, frogs, monkeys… and dozens of other species. A unique opportunity to enjoy nature tourism at its best!
3. WATER CANALS TO NAVIGATE AND PRACTICE ADVENTURE TOURISM
A boat ride through the Tortuguero water canals will give you close views of some of the more than 2.000 species of plants and 400 of trees that exist in the area.
During this ecological tour you will see Cariblanco, Spider and Howler monkeys jumping from one tree to another, basilisks running on water, manatees refreshing in the water and crocodiles sunbathing at the edge of the swamps, to mention some of the animals that will amaze the whole family.
4. CANOPY AND KAYAK ADVENTURE TOURS
Another recreation possibility during your stay at the Manatus Hotel is to do a kayak adventure tour, an option to forget the stress and slide in the water calmly and quietly.
If the adults want more adrenaline they can also do a canopy tour, where the treetops will be their flight companions.
