Tamarindo Turtle Tour 

A rare opportunity to watch huge sea turtles nesting

Tamarindo Turtle Tours – Playa Minas constitutes one of the most important nesting sites in Costa Rica. Large numbers of turtles arrive from October until March and usually at night. Join us with our Tamarindo turtle tour and we will pick you up at the hotel and take you to Playa Las Minas where turtles are nesting. You will be able to see the black turtles and if you are lucky there will also be some of the very rare leatherback turtles.

The beautiful scene of the stars, the moon, and the ocean makes the perfect set-up for this incredible experience with nature. In addition, the guides will provide infrared light, so that you will be able to clearly see the turtles and take your own pictures. Expect some waiting time during the Tamarindo turtle watching tour and be prepared to sit on the sand. To make sure you see the turtles it is sometimes necessary to take a hike to a close-by beach.

* Transportation is only included for Tamarindo and Langosta Area, email us for a transportation quote if coming from anywhere else.
