Tortuga Lodge

Baby Turtles Hatching

Season: late August to November 1st

Escorted by the best Tortuguero Guides available, you will walk the beach either in the early morning hours or just before sunset in search of a nest that has begun to hatch. Baby turtles dig their way out of the nest and then make their way to the water. Assuming that they can avoid the predators waiting for them both on land and in the ocean 25 to 30 years from now they will return to this very beach and the life-cycle will begin anew.
