Tortuguero is a Pleistocene pyroclastic cone on the Atlantic coastal plain adjacent to the Caribbean Sea (Barquero and Saenz, 1987; Alvarado, 2000). The small 119-m-high basaltic pyroclastic cone was constructed over fluvial sediments along one of the many coastal lagoons common in this part of the Carribean coastline. The cone lies near the northern boundary of scenic Tortuguero National Park, a popular coastal rainforest park rich in birds and wildlife.
