Isla Tortuga island

Ultimate guide (April 2018)
Isla Tortuga - the most popular island in Costa Rica. The official name is Isla Tolinga. There is an excellent beach, which is very popular among tourists. Most of the island has no any pathways, and is not interesting. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

There are no hotels on the island. Also camping is not permitted. We recommend to stay in Paquera town, or in one of the surrounding villages. However, choice of accommodation is poor in this area.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to San Jose International Airport (SJO) or fly to Liberia International Airport (LIR).

Take bus or taxi to Paquera town in the south of Nicoya peninsula. Boats to the "paradise" island leave from many coastal villages: Montezuma, Cabuya, Mal Pais, Santa Teresa or Tambor. In most cases, it is a package tour including meals.

When to go [edit]

It is best to go in the dry season from December to April. Relatively good weather is often in November. The rest of time there is a lot of rain - especially in August-October.
