Turtle Nesting

I will be in Nosara ( guilded iguana) fron 7/24 to 7/30. Am I too early to experience any turtle activity- nesting or hatching? How would I go about doing this if the timing was right?

You should be able to see nesting Olive Ridley turtles at night at Ostional, which is just north of Nosara. There are tour operators in town that will take you there or you can drive up yourself and get a guide at the community watch station. There is no secure parking, so do not leave anything of value in the car.

Bast months are July through November. Best DATES are at the last quarter moon, which you will be in between, as last quarter for July is on the 10th and last quarter for Aug. will be on the 9th. So, you mights not see a huge number of turtles, but you do have a good chance of seeing some. I'd ask at the iguana when you get there. Very, very nice people there.
