7/22.- Tortuguero National Park, Tortuguero's Church


The turtle tour is done after the sun sets. Although the beach is very close to the town of Tortuguero, you need to book a tour to see the turtles by night. After 6 pm, the area is only open to visitors if accompanied by an official guide. The tour lasts around two hours.

Although turtles laying their eggs may be seen all year round, there are two main nesting seasons. The Green Sea and Hawksbill turtles come from July to October, with the peak in August. The Leatherback turtles come from February to April.

Before starting the turtle tour, your guide will explain what you can and what you can't do; you can't take pictures, you can't use flashlights, you have to wear dark clothes, and you have to follow your group.
