In the Tortuguero National Park there has been 11 different habitats identified which makes it one of the most biologically diverse wildlife areas of Costa Rica. The most important natural resource the park has to offer is the water that is found in the canals and lagoons of the tropical rainforest which is very humid. The great bio-diversity of this park makes it possible to observe very different species such as jaguars, sloths, tapirs, tepezcuintles, monkeys (white face and howler). There are also reptiles such as caimans, crocodiles, frogs and turtles (green, caray, baula and caballera).
