Turtle Watching

On this tour we will show you the whole nesting process of two of the eight species of sea turtles in the world. (Leather backs and/or Pacific Green Turtles)

From the moment the turtles come out of the water to how they build their nest and lay their eggs and of course the moment when the baby turtles start hatching.

Leaving just after sunset, your guide will pick you up from Tamarindo and take you to a protected beach located 30 minutes away.

You will have the chance to see sea turtles laying their eggs at a series of secluded beaches near Playa Minas. You could possibly see the Leatherback turtles, but it is rare.

Due to the sensitive nature of this naturalist tour, the local guides prohibit the use of flashlights or flash on your cameras, but you may take pictures. A special red light will be provided by the guide that does not disturb the turtles.

Turtles can be seen year around, but October to Mai is the peak season for turtle nesting. You will be dropped off at your hotel at the end of the tour.
