Question - Hatching Sea Turtles in April?

Hello All!

My husband and I will be vacationing in Costa Rica at the beginning of April 2019. Half of our trip will be spent in Tamarindo. I was curious if it was possible to see baby turtles hatching at this time? And if so, any suggestions to responsible tour companies or people/naturalists, or a better location that we can take a taxi to?

I see several nesting turtles opportunities but I'd like to see babies hatching instead. Any advice welcome

You can try to drive to Camaronal by Punta Islita or Playa Carrillo first to Samara then Carrillo then Camaronbal...good chances to see them or from Samara to Nosara and next to Nosara Ostional that is a magicla place for turtles...nobody can guarantee that you will see turtles...but nice to try...
