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.

"Everyone should experience this tour at least once in their life! The convenience of the pick-up/ drop-off service made this process as smooth as possible for us. Maria, our guide, was very knowledgeable, helpful, and super friendly the whole time. We loved that the guides stopped and took photos for us without our prompting. We gave the horses (and ourselves) a break halfway through, and we were able to sip piña coladas by a beautiful beach. The guides are great at matching you with a horse that suits your speed, just mention your preference in the beginning. I’d give the whole tour 10 stars if I could."..."

Turtle Nesting At Famous Playa Ostional
"Unfortunately Ostional was closed due to Corona. I was offered a full refund or a discount to make the tour to another beach. I chose the latter. The tour starts a bit later as Playa Minas is a lot closer than Ostional. I went at a bad time as the full moon had been two days earlier. Wasn't able to see any full grown turtles but was lucky enough to see 9 hatchlings and got to experience their release into the ocean. The beach itself is a 10 minute walk from the car park, you can do it in sandals but easier in sneakers. You should avoid using white clothes and obviously no flash on the beach. My tour guide was very nice, spoke good english and made sure I had everything ok!"..."

"What an amazing experience. It was worth the long standing waits. Be prepared to ride along bumpy roads and walk through some difficult terrain. Going through the sand was a good workout!! And practically in near dark though the guides used infra-red lights and flashlights when necessary. We did get to see 4 turtles: 2 Olive Ridley and 2 Green Sea turtles. One actually laid eggs. The guys were very informative and courteous. Very respectful of the animals. Would definitely recommend for a one-in-a-lifetime experience. Muchas gracias por una noche increíble."..."

Tamarindo Kayaking Tour with Snorkeling at Captain Island
"This is a simple tour. The guide met us at our hotel (Diria), we walked a couple hundred yards down the road to their place on the beach. They carried the kayaks down to the water and we paddled across the Captain's Island. The island is not much more than a rock outcropping, you can see it from anywhere on Tamarindo Beach, it's the island beyond the moored boats with a sandy looking beach. It was a windy day and the operator asked if wanted to wait until later in the day to see if it calmed down, we were ready to go so decided to give it a try. It was not a bad paddle across to the beach and the landing area is good. The guide walked us around the island pointing out wild life and view points on shore. I did not expect the snorkeling to be very good as it was quite windy and frankly it didn't look like much of a reef as we paddled over it. To my surprise, it was actually pretty good despite the rough water. A good reef with reasonably clear water and a good variety of fish. The guide found some unique fish, including spider starfish and a puffer fish. The paddle back was a bit difficult as it was pretty much straight into the wind. The guide hooked up a tow rope between the kayaks to help keep us on track. The kayaks are very stable even in fairly rough waters. It took a while, maybe 30 minutes, to get back to shore but it was a good workout. Total time was just over 2 hours. I would do this one again, it would even better under better weather conditions."..."
