Tours Activities Reseller exclusions Nature & adventure

Visit the beautiful Playa Minas to see the nesting site of the black turtles, and if you are lucky, the leatherback turtles.

Highlights

  • Marvel at the peaceful secluded beach under the stars
  • Witness the annual turtle nesting
  • See the region's black turtles and perhaps the rare leatherback turtles

Description

You will be picked up from your hotel at 6:00 PM and driven to Playa Minas or a nearby beach that is home to nesting turtles. Playa Minas constitutes one of Costa Rica's most important nesting sites. Between October and March, large numbers of turtles migrate to this region. It remains one of the last untouched beaches in the world, giving it a remote paradise feel. There will be a 700-meter hike in the dark with infrared flashlights provided by your tour guide. Once arriving at the beach, the guide will educate the group on how to respectfully navigate the area. You will see the black turtles, and if you are lucky, the rare leatherback turtles. The leatherback sea turtle is the largest sea turtle in the world, weighing over 1,200 pounds and averaging almost 8 feet in length.
