Costa Rica - Caribbean coast

Location: Tortuguero, Costa Rica

Here are a few pics from the Northern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, from an area called Tortuguero. This is one of the main nesting sites for green turtles in the world. The area is only accessible by boat through a series of canals. Being there felt like being in the Amazon (I can only imagine). During the boat ride we saw, crocodiles, sloths and lots of birds, mainly herons as it's a wet-land area. Observing a green turtle lay its eggs on the beach at night was a real highlight - no photo's of that however as it's not allowed, turtles are very sensitive to light when it comes to nesting time!
