During the warmest months of the year in Guanacaste, we find the peak season (predominantly from October through May), when it's possible especially at night to observe turtles come out of the water, building their nests, laying their eggs, and even can observe sometimes babies hatching and going out to the ocean!! A bilingual naturalistic guide will help you to understand the process of spawning and nesting, a unique experience. Please note : The guide will provide a special infrared light that does not disturb the turtles. No flashlights or flash photography are allowed because light may confuse the turtles.
