Know More about this tour

Getting pick up by your tour guide at your hotel, hostel or rental house we will star the journey to Camaronal, Corozalito or Ostional beach awarded like some of the most important wildlife refuges for turtle protection in the world.

On the way the guide will provide a very details list of things we can and cannot do at this refuge, since is a wildlife refuge we dont want to disturb the turtles or scare them and then they wont lay their eggs so is very essential to follow the guide instructions and always stay together.

Ones we arrive to the entrance, you will have a chance to use the bathroom, apply bug spray and get ready to entrance the beach. Since is a tour at night we will provide red light flashlights to walk on the beach while we look for turtles, remember the turtles are wild so the time that they will come we dont know it but in this beaches you have a 90% change to see them.

Ones we have found one we will try to see the whole proses they go through for laying there eggs, from the moment the get out of the water till the moment they go back in the water. Seeing how much effort they have to putt on to make the hole in the sand and them cobbering their nest putting the sand back to where it was and make it look like nothing is there, it will leave you amaze and you will want to clap to her ones she is done and start walking back to the water all tired out taking breaks constantly trying to reach out for the water and finally rest.

If there are some babys hatching that night you will have a big change to see them when the volunteers release them on the beach to walk on their own to the water and fighting over and over against the wave to get in the water and start their life in the water
