These fascinating creatures can range between two and six feet, migrate to and from the shore, and typically return to the same beach they were born for nesting season.

When to See Them

When to See Them

From mid-July through January, you can see sea turtles nesting on Panamanian shores. It happens at night, when the tide is low and the beaches are calm. Then, between 45 and 60 days later, when the sunlight is soft, they hatch and begin their journey to the sea for the first time.
