Ask the entry, I don't remember the price but it was not much. We had it paid hotel, but returned it to pay. Ensure you see a turtle, if not, they return you the money.

Follow the instructions of the Guide, with good English, so not to disturb the turtle... With binoculars we could see at least other 4 in the surrounding area, entering the beach, make the nest and return to the sea...
