Escorted by Captains Eddy or Roberto Brown, you will go out into the ocean by boat and observe hundreds of Atlantic green sea turtles mating in the waters off the coast before the females venture ashore to perform the most dangerous task of their lives---exposing themselves to predators (many of them human) while they lay their eggs. Operation of this tour is subject to sea conditions.

Smokers Be Aware!
Costa Rica has recently passed one of the strictest smoking regulations in the world; hotels are 100% SMOKE FREE.
If you are a guest at the hotel, and want to smoke, by law you are required to leave the property. This means that you have to be taken by boat across the river to the beach. Boats are available most of the time but not all the time, you may have to wait (10 minutes – 2 hours) for a boat to return to the lodge before you can be taken across.
Boats are NOT available to take you to a place where you can smoke at night. We realize that this is very inconvenient, but it’s the law. There is an $800 fine for breaking this law.
