See Sea Turtles in Costa Rica

sea-turtles-costa-rica When and where to see sea turtles in Costa Rica
Have you ever seen sea turtles laying eggs in the sand under the cover of darkness on a remote tropical beach? It's an amazing experience we want to give you by offering this opportunity to see the turtles in Costa Rica for free. The "rich coast" of Costa Rica is blessed with some of the most important nesting grounds in the world for four different species of sea turtles.

It's a rare privilege to witness these prehistoric reptiles of the sea that have evolved for millennia to migrate thousands of miles back to the beaches where they emerged. On a night turtle tour escorted by a well-trained local guide you can actually stand just a few feet from a giant green or leatherback sea turtle with an average weight of 300 pounds and watch while she heaves and sighs for up to an hour laying 80-100 eggs before camouflaging her nest and returning to the sea.

We've created an infographic on the best times to see the turtles in Costa Rica, loaded with all kinds of interesting turtle facts. (Click the image below)
