Boutique Turtle Expedition.

Advantages
1. You will not be subject to the regimentation required to have as many 600 people per night observing turtle nesting on the beach without scaring off the turtles. Organizing the movements of all these tourists detracts from the intense, memorable experience and personal connection you can't get from a picture, a video, or the standard large group tour.

2. You get to look for and find your own turtle.

3. Only your Private Turtle Nesting Expedition group will have a one hour boat ride to an isolated stretch of sand that you'll have virtually to yourselves.

Disadvantages
1. It is physically more demanding than the Standard Tour. Shorter walks. Quicker to get you back to the hotel if you get tired.

2. It costs more than the Standard Tour.

3. The is a limited amount of space on the Boutique Experience and it is not always available.

Standard Nesting Tour.

Advantages
1. It is physically easier than the Boutique Expedition. Shorter walks. Quicker to get you back to the hotel if you get tired.

2. It costs less than the Boutique Expedition.

3. It is available when the Boutique Expeditions are full. Seeing a nesting turtle at all is such a special experience no one should miss it.

Disadvantages
1. The regimentation required to have as many 600 people per night observing turtle nesting on the beach without scaring off the turtles necessarily detracts from the intense, memorable experience and personal connection you can't get from a picture, a video, or the standard large group tour.

2. You do not get to look for and find your own turtle. The trackers find the turtle for you and the rest of the people at your dispatching station.

3. Only your Private Turtle Nesting Expedition group will have a one hour boat ride to an isolated stretch of sand that you'll have virtually to yourselves.


Therefore, our recommendation is…
If you are physically and financially up for it, and can get a reservation for one of the Boutique Turtle Nesting Expeditions, we recommend you do so.
It's in another league. The deeper firsthand experience and lifetime memories are worth it. This opportunity is limited to a very few people in Costa Rica - locals and travelers "in the know."
But do go on one of the Turtle Adventures for sure.
