Flying out of Tortuguero

There are no roads to Tortuguero. We arrived by boat, and we left by plane. Although the domestic airlines do provide service to the small landing strip at Tortuguero, we took a small chartered flight. This is my wife getting on board.

I took the aerial photos that I showed at the beginning of this series several weeks ago from this plane as we left. It was raining, which is not unusual for an area that gets 200 inches of rain per year.

In the future days I will show the airport in Tamarindo, as we return to the Pacific Coast. I will also tell you something about a Costa Rican airline that is unique in the world.

You must both feel comfortable flying. I love those little planes but not everyone does.

I'm afraid of height, but never worry flying. Can't wait to your next photo and story.

I love these little planes on good weather days only but they allow you wonderful aerial photo opportunities.

I can see how you got such good views from the air now. You get much better views in the smaller planes.

I left Tortuguero on a small boat heading south to Limon, it was quite an adventure, but the sceneries were fantastic!
