Spawning Turtles Tortuguero Tour


– Witness the miracle of life and help the sea turtles to start this marvelous process.
– Meet the Green and/or the Leatherback turtle, endangered turtle species that nests in the sands of Tortuguero.


Go through the most important nesting site for the endangered Green and Leatherback turtles, where you will have the chance to see amazing sea turtles laying their eggs on the beach outside the town. Help the circle of life of the Green and the Leatherback turtle to start at Tortuguero!

Between June and October, approximately, the beaches of Tortuguero offer a marvelous spectacle that nobody should miss. With the help of a volunteer tracking team, we will show you how the sea turtles arrive to the land their ancestors have been using to make their nests for millions of years, performing the same ritual in different phases, starting when they reach the beach sand thanks to the wave’s swinging. When they find the right place and environment, they dig their nests in the sand to later put their eggs and hide them under the sand before they return to the sea. You will live a truly magical moment that only a few privileged people is able to experience.
