  • Warning, this is a review of the of the sea turtle Conservancy offered night tours to the storage sites of sea turtles. We have an evening tour through our hotel (Aninga Lodge) (start time either 20 or 22) for $35 per person booked and despite pouring rain just in time with the boat picked up. Spot was then the very large group split into several groups of 5-10 people and guided one by one to the storage places. We had the incredible luck to watch freshly hatched baby turtles on their way to the sea, as well as a 1.5 metre-long sea turtle nesting. Our guide has told us many interesting facts and answered all of our questions. A unique experience! Not to disturb the turtles, you may not shoot but they.

  • This organization has a local that is located close to the town of Tortuguero and which are in a souvenir shop, a room of lectures and exhibitions (where a video that tells the story of the Organization and its work you can see) and a small museum. They are also responsible for coordinate tours to observe the nesting and birth of the turtles. Worth a visit and help with their work that has given a total twist to the relationship of human beings with nature.
