    Amazing turtle nesting tour
    Graham_B, Feb 2020
    What an amazing experience. It was worth the long standing waits. Be prepared to ride along bumpy roads and walk through some difficult terrain. Going through the sand was a good workout!! And practically in near dark though the guides used infra-red lights and flashlights when necessary. We did get to see 4 turtles: 2 Olive Ridley and 2 Green Sea turtles. One actually laid eggs. The guys were very informative and courteous. Very respectful of the animals. Would definitely recommend for a one-in-a-lifetime experience. Muchas gracias por una noche increíble.
    Amazing tour

    Our coordinator Nacho was super helpful very friendly and personable. He came to ensure that our guides for us from our hotel. The guides were great lots of good information on the turtles. We were in a group of 6 people which was great. I’d recommend wearing closed toe shoes for this and there is a bit of walking ( and jogging ) to get to the turtles on time. You need to be patient but it was so worth it. Thanks nacho! :)
