Tamarindo Turtle Nesting
On this Tamarindo Turtle Nesting tour, you will have the rare chance to see Olive Ridley and Green Pacific sea turtles lay their eggs, and sometimes even see the babies hatching and going out to sea!
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 Olive Ridley and Green Pacific sea turtles laying their eggs at a series of secluded beaches near Playa Grande. 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 April is the peak season for turtle nesting. You will be dropped off at your hotel at the end of the tour.
