Curú Wildlife Refuge & Tortuga Island

Jan 03, 2020 - National Geographic Sea Lion


Our first full day in Costa Rica and we already crossed off a lot of wildlife! Starting at Curú Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica’s first private national wildlife refuge, the ups and downs of the trails gave us amazing views of the animals of the tropical dry forest. Letting the hottest part of the day pass us by, we repositioned to Tortuga Island for kayaking, paddleboarding, boogie boarding, and a barbeque on the beach!
