Every year from April to November thousands of sea turtles come ashore on the beaches of Costa Rica to lay their eggs. Both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts are visited by over six species of sea turtles, whose golf ball-sized eggs will incubate beneath the sand for 50-70 days before emerging as hatchlings and beginning their mad scramble towards the sea. This night-time tour allows travelers to observe either end of this ancient procession – the laying or hatching – and are sure to provide any tour taker with an unforgettable unique memory.
