Directions to Playa Tortuguilla
On the same road to El Fuerte San Lorenzo is this beautiful beach with crystal clear waters in the form of a natural pool. It is bordered by mangroves and a lot of jungle in the San Lorenzo National Park, where a lot of fauna and diverse flora live.
We recommend to anyone who wants to know Costa Abajo de Colon, to go to this paradise; It is very rewarding to go through the Gatun locks, meet Sherman, Shelter Bay Marina, located in Bahía Limón, anchorage area for yachts and sailboats of foreigners visiting Panama that has a restaurant, bar, bookshop, showers, laundry, internet, cleaning of boats and other facilities.
You can stay for a while in the San Lorenzo fort and then take a good swim in the waters of Playa Tortuguilla, with calm waters and turquoise, with some reef shores perfect for snorkeling.
You have to go through Anam and pay two dollars per person, which includes visiting the fort and of course the beach, which is inside the park. Just before reaching the fort, on the right hand side there is a yellow arrow that indicates the entrance to this beach.
The street is dirt but there is no major problem with sedan cars, it is about 10 minutes on the street until you see the beach, you can also take the initiative to walk the street until you reach the beach, which can not take more than 30 minutes and so you can enjoy the wonders of this tropical forest with its characteristic animals, the red mangrove with its fulcrum roots that have a transcendental role in this ecosystem because they constitute the temporary habitat of various animal species associated with it.
