Leatherback Sea Turtle Nesting Tour

Inquire Booking

In our night or early morning expedition, we will take you to the Las Baulas National Marine Park in Playa Grande, where for thousands of years, the leatherback turtles that hatched in Playa Grande have returned to lay their eggs. Leatherback turtles are the largest marine turtles in the world, weighing approximately 1.20.0 pounds and almost 8 feet long, and one of the most endangered. Follow our knowledgeable guides around Playa Grande where you can see some of the turtles disembark to lay their eggs - up to 75 of them!


The area is home to the second largest nesting location in the world for leatherback turtles. Because of this, the area is heavily regulated to protect the habitat. Nesting seasons are typically between October and February. This is a wonderful opportunity to take the family out to see one of Costa Rica's most memorable experiences.
