... We watched in as she finished up, then slowly, and with breaks, crawled back to the ocean. That was probably our favourite part of the evening, watching her disappear off back into the sea to recover for 3 days before her next bout of laying. Next we were lucky enough to see another one, where she had just finished digging her hole, which was really impressive, and was actually laying her eggs. When the turtle starts, she can't stop, so was maybe a little frightened with ...

The Rio Pacure has been ranked by National Geographic as one of ...
... a small town of about 1,600 residents. We were told that 95% of the residents rely on the tourism trade to make a living – the only ones that don’t are people like teachers, medical staff, and police. There is a turtle conservation center that we are planning on exploring tomorrow. Our guide took us to the beach where he pointed out a nest that a turtle had probably just laid eggs in the night before – it is basically a 4 foot diameter depression in ...
