Beach at El Tortuguero

Filed under: — site admin @ 9:14 pm

Beach in Costa Rica
El Tortuguero (Limn province) is known for its canals and for the turtles that build their nests on the beaches of this fascinating nature reserve.
Actually, the name of the place is derived from Spanish “tortuga” for turtle.
Even when there are no turtles, the beaches are quite beautiful and the boat tours on the canals are fun.

Caiman Portrait

Crocodile at Tambor Beach

I spotted this nice fellow under a bridge crossing a small rivulet near the hotel.
As this was the mouth of the small river, and the water presumably quite brackish, I guess that this was a crocodile rather than a caiman, but I’m by no means sure.
Maybe someone more knowledgeable can enlighten me?
Actually, the way this animal looked was quite “cute”, and neither of us seemed to be scared although we were only a few meters away from each other…

Costa Rica: Monkey on the Beach

Hanging your rucksack from a tree may offer a certain protection against other species, however, the Capuchin monkeys are not easily deterred, especially if they know there are fruits to be found.
Actually, a few minutes later when nobody was looking, a colleague of the monkey in the picture retrieved a shopping bag full of fruit from another traveller and disappeared with it in a high tree.
Seen on a Costa Rica beach.

Fumes and mist over the volcano

Volcano Pos, Costa Rica.
Fumes and mist hide the crater, - but the surreal atmosphere makes up for it.

Quite close to San Jos, volcano Pos is still active - and an impressive place.

Small monkey in a tree. Looks cute? Yes, but I saw one of those guys steal a whole bag full of tropical fruit from another traveler, so beware…
