Due to the hurricane, we’re now in a two-week lull for tortugita hatching. That’s how long it took to get the tortuguero back up and running and send out the nightly egg patrol. We encouraged Bob to do some last-minute schedule-shuffling and he managed to get here on the last night before the long break.
As promised, Señor Bode gave Bob the facilities tour and a few pointers on digging up the little guys.
Only two nests to dig up this night, and a few tourists showed up for the liberación.
Sunsets on the beach. Baby turtle releases. It’s all part of the tour package.
