Full description
After pickup from your hotel, drive to the beach. The guide will provide an introduction about the turtles, and how to behave on the beach. You may have to wait a while for the turtle to feel safe and come onto the beach. When she is ready, see the female turtle going up the beach, looking for the best place to lay her eggs. She will then prepare the ground and start digging. When the hole is ready, the turtle will start laying between 65 and 100 egg. When she is done laying her eggs, she will close the hole before going back into the sea. You will then be dropped back to your hotel.
