Turtle Nesting Tour

Turtle Nesting Tour

star-5
Seeing the turtles lay their eggs is a unique experience and when it comes to the arrival it is even more because there are literally so many turtles that you can barely walk. Arrivals commonly occur at Ostional beach only 3 days a month based on tides and phase of the moon, however, the turtles themselves are the ones that decide, so the dates are unpredictable. Turtles always lay their eggs on the same beach, which is also the same where they were born, which makes the experience even more special. Depending on the time the guides, who will do everything possible to see turtles, will take them in case of arrival to the Ostional refuge or a fairly popular option is the Camaronal refuge where there are no arrivals, but you have good opportunities to see turtles in less quantity and even newborns

Coffee and Jungle Night Tour

Coffee and Jungle Night Tour

star-5
Coffee'N Jungle Night Tour is a unique, different, instructive and fun tour. It is the perfect combination of Costa Rican coffee culture and the adventure of discovering wildlife in Monteverde. In this tour, visitors will learn a lot about the whole process of coffee, cocoa and the sweet juice of sugarcane. But Coffee'N Jungle is a tour that also deals with nature. That is why part of the tour is dedicated to exploring the forest at night. So we can be spectators of the wonderful concert that is performed jointly by several species of frogs and crickets while we witness the ephemeral works of art painted by fireflies with light brushes. And, with a little luck, we can observe other inhabitants of the forest, such as the lazy patient with two fingers or the elusive Kinkajou.
