    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Samara Beach, Playa Samara Costa Rica

    September and October are the strongest months for turtle nesting.

    The pick up starts at hotels within the Samara-Carrillo Beach area.

    Stop At: Playa Corozalito, Bejuco, Nandayure, Guanacaste Crusar en Restaurante La Terraza, Bejuco 50906 Costa Rica

    You will ride with a driver/guide to either Corozalito Beach or Camaronal Beach towards the South from Samara or if there is an arribada in Ostional Beach, the tour will be changed for no additional cost. Arribadas are when thousands of turtles come to shore to lay eggs. This happens once a month from 3 to 4 days after the last quarter phase of the moon.

    Your guide will explain all the safety procedures and will give the corresponding instructions of the tour. The experienced guide will walk you through the beach in search for the turtles. During the tour, the guide will provide information and you can ask for drinks such as water and juices while you look at the surroundings. Enjoy some fruit as a snack on the way back to your hotel.

    All three adventures were amazing. We got to see a turtle dig a hole, lay her eggs, bury them and then walk back to the sea - under the stars! Sámara trails was a great hike including an stunning view of the whole bay. We...More

    We did the evening tour to see the turtles laying eggs. This is a seasonal tour (as you might have guessed), and takes about 2-3 hours, depending when you find a turtle ready to lay eggs. From Samara, it is about a 25 minute drive,...More
