Ostional Turtle Nesting Experience

Inquire Booking

Seeing Green Olive Ridley turtles nesting or watching their eggs hatching in their natural environment is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you simply cannot miss. Follow our knowledgeable guides around Playa Ostional where you may get a chance to watch turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. The number of turtles you may see can be simply breathtaking but please don't disturb them. 

As they come out of the Pacific Ocean and make their way up the beach to their nesting areas they can get very tired and it is also important not to help the baby turtles reach the ocean once they have hatched. Sea turtles imprint on the sand in which they were hatched and oils from your skin can interfere with this process. On this tour sit back and relax and enjoy the view of the annual turtle migration.
