The island is part of a national park and there are very strict rules about who is allowed to lead guides and each day they get allocated a slot for their group. Fortunately I got the earliest one of 8 - 10pm, as I do like my sleep. I was in a group with a French family of 3.

No doubt more on the cloud forest tomorrow, but after leaving ...

It turns out that one of the biggest predators of the adult female turtles is a local population of about 20 jaguars.
In 60 days the eggs will hatch, and less than 1% of the baby turtles make it back to the ocean – most are eaten by raccoons that dig up their ...
