Turtle Nesting Night Tour

Samara Adventures

NOTE: Turtle Season is available from June 1st to January 30th

Trip Description

Camaronal beach is the nesting home for three of the seven species of sea turtles, in the world: The Olive Ridley, Leatherback, and Hawksbills Black. All three of these species have been declared endangered. The protection of these sea turtles’ precious natural environment – a non-developed beach- is an ongoing project. And one of our dearest treasures in Costa Rica.

Bright lights and noise can scare turtles away, and make them turn back to the sea before laying their eggs. That is why kindly we ask that you wear dark clothing and refrain from using cameras or any other type of light.

The turtles nest at Camaronal all year round, but the best season is from June until first days of January. This tour is during the night, and you will get to experience firsthand this beautiful natural process of life, from turtles laying eggs to their birth, when they hatch the eggs and start their journey into the sea! If are a nature lover this is the perfect way to see it up close!
