turtles near Playa Grande

We will be in Playa Grande in late February and were planning to take a guided tour to the beach where the turtles come ashore. However someone told us, that it is not so good this year. I'm not sure what "not so good" means, but I'm wondering whether it will be worth signing up for the tour. What does the tour offer? I heard the museum no longer exists.

The turtle nesting is good every three years, according to their cycles. The end of February is the very end of the nesting season for the leather backs. I would say wait until you are in playa Grande and ask for the latest tours to analyze the turtle observation.

Hope to give you an idea
