Nighttime Pacific Green Turtle Nesting Experience in Flamingo

The surface of the Pacific Ocean is rippling orange with the light of the setting sun. Your guide spots a four-foot-long turtle heading up the beach.

You follow, keeping a reasonable distance from the Pacific green turtle as she selects her nesting area and begins digging a hole. 

Watch one of the region’s great natural phenomenons as the large turtle lays dozens of eggs while waves break nearby. She’ll then bury the eggs to protect them from predators, and return to the ocean. 

The eggs are left to hatch in roughly 60 days, while you’re left pondering the life of these magnificent, endangered animals.
