Is Tortuguero & the Caribbean Coast OK to travel to w/ Kids

Planning a trip in July timeframe with 4 kids ages 11. 9. 8 and 4. Is Tortuguero a place that would be recommended to travel to? We are drawn to it because of the turtle nesting.....but know less about this area than others. Is it very difficult to get to ? Is it generally safe?

Tortuguero is magical, but is a long trip to get there. Don't know your kids, turtle nesting is done in the middle of the night, usually lots of bugs around too, your kids might be a bit young for a Tortuguero adventure.

I took my 8 year old, 4 year old and 2 year old to Tortuguero..... we stayed at Pachira Lodge. Did the Canal Tour, Jungle Tour and Village Tour.... We didnt do the turtle tour, but your kids are old enough to do the tour and they will love it. All the tours are very well managed. Remember, the tours are at night.

Have fun!
