Experience the exhilarating natural phenomenon of sea turtles nesting on this special tour. Costa Rica’s north Pacific coast is a haven for endangered and at-risk sea turtle populations. Here, every year ancient sea turtles return to the beach where they were born to lay hundreds of eggs beneath the sand.
Our night tour gives you the rare opportunity to witness female sea turtles as they swim to shore under the moonlight, dig large, deep holes under the sand and enter a trance-like state as they lay between 100 and 150 soft-shelled eggs. The females then bury the eggs, journey back down the beach and disappear under the surface.
This sea turtle nesting tour begins at your hotel right after down and returns around 9:30 p.m. Included: transportation, bilingual nature guide
What to bring: camera without flash, closed-toe shoes or sandals, insect repellent and dark clothes.
Suited for: all ages; moderate physical condition is required, as this tour implies some walking on sand.
