A Natural Adventure with Endangered Olive Ridley Sea Turtles on Costa Rica"s Pacific Coast.
Many of nature"s greatest spectacles impress with their bold size: For a some months each year on Costa Ricas"s Pacific coast, Olive Ridley Sea Turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand. Under cover of darkness, the baby hatchlings scurry to the sea, remembering forever their birthplace to which they will one day return to continue the cycle of life. You are there to witness this wonder and help ensure the tiny turtles' safe passage, on a nature adventure like no other.
A Rare Nature Adventure You Won't Find Anywhere Else!
While you may find opportunities to observe sea turtles in a number of places in the world, no trip we are aware of offers the in-depth immersion ours does, in the company of expert naturalists and researchers.
So many Lora turtles (olive Ridley turtles)come onto the beach, "Arribadas" occur all through the year, at least once a month and, in some months, may occur twice. The months between July to December, during the rainy season, see larger "arribadas". That means that the number of nesting turtles may be in the range of hundreds of thousands as opposed to tens of thousands for the dry season months.
The Loras Turtle is an amazing creature and it is quite a privilege to go and be amongst them. Especially if you come May - February which is the Guanacaste Loras Turtle Nesting Season. When you go out at sunset or night time and get to see these animals in their natural environment it's an unforgettable experience. Seeing how these animals could be extinct in the future this is truly a great opportunity to enjoy these animals in their natural surroundings. We will also encounter leather back and green turtles as well so it's a variety most of the time. But please note that there is not video recording or flash photography on this tour.
