8/22.- Tortuguero National Park, Tortuguero Beach


During the day, you can walk along the beach, and look for turtle eggs. All year round, the baby turtles can be spotted on the beach. 7 to 10 weeks after the eggs are laid, the baby turtles dig their way out of their nests, and go to the sea. Female turtles will come back to the same beach when they are adults to lay their own eggs. Male turtles may never come out of the water again.

Unfortunately, because it is not allowed to take pictures of the turtles by night, I do not have any pictures of them. But I can tell you that I did see a couple of them laying eggs. The experience was unforgettable. 100% recommended.
