TRANSFER: Caribbean Coast to Le Cameleon Luxury Hotel
A melting pot of ethnic and cultural diversity, the Caribbean coast spreads out like a tropical patchwork quilt. Visiting the Caribbean is like entering an area where it’s inhabitants and culture will remind you of the British colonized Caribbean islands, mainly Jamaica. Rich in awe-inspiring jungle, where many endangered species thrive, a great portion of this coast is protected in national parks. Perhaps the best known is Tortuguero, which covers 3/4 of Costa Rica’s eastern seaboard. There are plenty of wetlands, rivers, lagoons, and canals that serve as a window through which the visitor can admire the amazing flora and fauna, making it a wonderful experience for nature lovers. Along the coast approximately 3000 Green Sea Turtles come to shore each season, between July and October, to lay their eggs. Caymans, monkeys, sloths, toucans, manatees, jaguars, and 405 species of birds abound in the area.
