Baby Turtles

First turtle hatchlings crawl toward the ocean

The first turtle hatchlings on Playa Tortuga for 2016

Turtles are hatching!

It’s been a busy turtle season here at Reserva Playa Tortuga! We’ve had several nests hatch already (including one emergency hatchery – moving a nest that was endangered by the tide). It’s quite a sight, watching all the baby turtles crawl across the sand and into the water.

Want to see it for yourself? Come volunteer!

If you like it, why not share it?

    Hello, We are staying at El Castillo Hotel and just wondering if you are having any releases? Scott Dinsmore here said we should inquire. We are so close, it would be great to come and see if anything is happening!

      Hi Renée, thanks for your interest. Due to the storm that hit our coast a few weeks ago, the turtle hatchery was affected and unfortunately we lost many eggs. May some release come soon but we give notice on the same day through our Facebook Page Please stay tune.
