Being at the right place at the right time is important, but being there with an experienced guide is even more important. Good guides can take us to the perfect spot to see things only experienced eyes can see and as tourists we can use our guide’s eyes to find unpredictable and wonderful nature spectacles.
One amazing nature spectacle can be seen on a guided night-time turtle nesting tour in Tortuguero. Privileged travelers observing either end of the process – the laying of eggs or the hatching of baby turtles – are sure to have an unforgettable experience. And even if you don’t see turtles, the beautiful moonlit shore will make your visit well worth your while.
Tortuguero National Park is the most important nesting site of the endangered green turtle in the Western Hemisphere, and is visited by tourists from all over the world. There are 3 different sea turtle species that nest in Tortuguero: Leatherback, Hawksbill and Green. And while the sea turtles are the highlight of the park, there are over 300 identified bird species that call Tortuguero home as well as many rainforest creatures like sloths, howler monkeys, tiny frogs, green iguanas and panthers. The park includes many kilometers of canals and waterways lined with steamy jungle which teems with all this wildlife.
