Boat Trips through the Tortuguero National Park

Red-lored Amazon
Continuing our stay at Evergreen Lodge in the Tortuguero National Park, we had three private boat trips along the river and into the canals of the park.  What made this great was that each of us basically had a row of the boat to themselves and it was very rare that we got into each other's way.  Jeffrey, who was the captain of the boat, was great in finding us creatures to photograph and maneuvering the boat to help us get the best angle.  Regular tour boats, have a naturalist guide, but they are loaded with people.
