Reviews for Turtle conservation in Costa Rica


review 24 Aug 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Watching a turtle rise out of the ocean, find her place, nest and return was amazing. We were there for every moment and it was incredibly special. We were able to work with hatchlings also. The trip involved a lot of education about the environment, turtles, recycling, and local culture. It was so much more than we expected.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Pack mindfully. The project sites are very remote and you will not be running to the store to get things. If you are looking to disconnect from your day-to-day life, this will do it.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We learned about how the turtle projects contribute to many facets of the community. They support local transportation, create many jobs, help at the school, educate the residents and more. The project impacts so much more than just the wildlife.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This was a trip and an adventure. We enjoyed the adventure but it was different from a typical "vacation". Consider that it will be less " fun" but far more meaningful than a normal trip.
