Experience the amazing and rare opportunity to see the giant (500kg.) Leatherback sea turtles laying their eggs on Playa Grande. Tours are at night with the hour depending on high tide. Transportation picks you up at your hotel and drives you to the Tamarindo estuary where you are ferried across by boat to Playa Grande.
Due to the sensitive nature of this naturalist tour, the National Park prohibits the use of flashlights or cameras because they disturb the animal.
Price: $35 plus $10 park entrance if you see the turtle.
If no turtles are seen in the first night, the next night is no charge, but park admission must be paid when the turtle is seen.
The turtle nesting season starts on the 20 of October and finish on the 20 February.
