Ollie is here to help give you the inside track.

Tortuguero National Park is home to some of the world’s finest nesting sites for endangered green turtles. This nocturnal guided tour allows you the chance to see the females – who weigh around 300 lbs - haul themselves up the beach (the same one where they were born), dig a nest and lay their eggs before returning to the sea.

Turtles tend to lay their eggs at night to avoid predators and avoid the sand being too hot, and to minimise disturbance your guide has a red light torch, to which the turtles are not sensitive. Using this light you can see the entire process, and marvel at one of the most wonderful sites in nature.
