Costa Rica Sea Turtle Trip

It was a wonderful trip of doing research on turtles. The Oso peninsula is very beautiful. We got to do a lot of snorkeling and sightseeing. The staff and guides are very helpful and caring and take groups out to experience as much fun as possible. The accomodations were nice and the food was always wonderful. Brad Nahill is an easy going, experienced knowledgeable guide that has led many trips. I have been on at least 2 other trips with Brad and enjoy the experiences that he plans to make it educational and memorable.

A pioneer of ecotourism, Costa Rica draws many tourists to its extensive series of national parks and other protected areas. Costa Rica began reversing deforestation in the 1990s, and they are moving towards using only renewable energy. Head to the cloud forest, relax on the beautiful beaches or visit a coffee farm.
