Flying From Tortuguero

Knowing from past experiences that the return trip by boat and bus to San Jose is more tiring and less of an adventure, I chose to try flying back this time and not that early 6am flight!  🙂   But rather I took the 12:40 afternoon flight – and here is

The Story in Pictures

The Tortuguero Airport Parking Lot . . . A boat landing. My lodge “driver” dropped me off here and I walked over to the landing strip.

I love taking off alongside a beach! (Like in Limon)

Up over the village of Tortuguero . . .

And the beautiful Costa Rican Farms.

Our one stop before San Jose was at La Fortuna with Arenal Volcano towering above.

 

Sometimes I think I live a charmed life getting to see such beautiful sights! (Even though my suitcase did not make it on our overloaded flight and is suppose to be delivered by taxi sometime this evening.) I love being “Retired in Costa Rica” and I’m still processing the bird and other wildlife photos from this Tortuguero trip – but coming soon!

  1. Charlie, I recognized Tortuguero from the air at least the ocean, the land, and the river. I could almost imagine the boat rides to the village and the route we took on the boat to see birds and other wildlife. Can’t believe its been three years.
