  3. We went to Tortuguero last summer and stayed at Mawamba Lodge. AMAZING place! Thanks for sharing.

    Stayed in Tortuuero and it was amazing but if you want the amazon you need to see the Osa peninsula in costa rica. all the exotics in one place and they are readily visible. Saw a puma, tapir, and 8 other mammals on a 3 day hike. Worth the trip.
