We've timed this trip for the peak nesting season for three amazing sea turtle species - Olive Ridley, Hawksbill, and Green Sea Turtles. In our quest for these majestic creatures we will visit both coasts of Nicaragua starting with the laid- back Caribbean Coast and then the Pacific Coast for the incredible Olive Ridley arribadas where thousands of turtles arrive in a single night! Complementing the sea turtles will be sea kayaking and some outstanding snorkeling in Caribbean reef system and along the Pacific where we almost always are accompanied by Olive Ridley Sea Turtles who are rafting off-shore in preparation for their evening arrival. We round off this adventure with two nights on the iconic island of Ometepe and finishwith overnight in the charming colonial city of Granada.
