Seeing Green Olive Ridley turtles nesting or watching their eggs hatching in their natural environment is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you simply cannot miss. Follow our knowledgeable guides around Playa Ostional where you may get a chance to watch turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. The number of turtles you may see can be simply breathtaking but please don't disturb them.
As they come out of the Pacific Ocean and make their way up the beach to their nesting areas they can get very tired and it is also important not to help the baby turtles reach the ocean once they have hatched. Sea turtles imprint on the sand in which they were hatched and oils from your skin can interfere with this process. On this tour sit back and relax and enjoy the view of the annual turtle migration.
We can provide transportation pick up from various locations in Guanacaste. Please note the turtle arrival times cannot be predicted in advance. The best way to know about arrival times is the day of the actual occurence. Once at the Guide Association check in for the guided tour options. If no turtles are arriving on that date you can reschedule free of charge. There are usually seven peak viewing days a month during turtle nesting season.
