Your guide knows the best spots for seeing turtle activity during its season, but also provides tons of insight into the turtle life cycle that you might otherwise miss.  These guided turtle tours let you see these endangered turtles nesting or hatching in the wild.

After pick-up from your Samara or Carrillo Beach hotel, you will ride with a driver/guide to where an arribada or hatching is occuring.  That may be at Corozalito Beach, Camaronal Beach or Ostional Beach.  Arribadas are when thousands of turtles come to shore to lay eggs. This happens once a month from 3 to 4 days after the last quarter phase of the moon.

Your guide will explain all the safety procedures and instructions. You will walk the beach in search for the turtles.  During the tour, the guide will provide water and juices while you look at the surroundings.  Enjoy some cookies or fruit as a snack on the way back to your hotel with memories to last a lifetime.
