    Full moon walk on the beach - beautiful
    Peter_M, Apr 2023
    Sadly we didn’t see any turtles - but our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the beautiful night for a walk on the beach.

    Peter, thank you for your review. :) Turtles are out of our control, so things like this can happen... but we're happy to know you had a good time on tour. Pura vida!

    Incredible seeing these giants come ashore to lay their eggs. We learned so much about their life and nesting habits.
