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.

This season we are offering your clients travelling in Costa Rica from July to October a free Turtle Nesting Tour in Tortuguero when you make reference to this newsletter. Contact us to take advantage of this offer for your clients.

“A 28 m. (92 ft.) observation tower dedicated to the viewing of canopy birds and other wildlife. Placed in the center of the rainforest, The Nest offers unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities. As you ascend the 146 stairs to the top, keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, toucans, and other wildlife moving through the lower levels of the trees. Once at the top, you will be treated to an incredible 360° panoramic view of Arenal Volcano, Arenal Lake, Cerro Chato, and the Tilarán Mountain Range. This is the perfect spot to scan the canopy for birds and other wildlife amongst the treetops. With a telescope, you may even find some aquatic birds in the areas surrounding the lake Arenal.”
