The remnants of soft white shells litter the tops of the beach between craters where nesting sea turtles have laid their eggs along the 22-mile shoreline of Tortuguero Beach. Each year from July 1 to September 30, sea turtle nests crowd the top of the beach. Inside the nests, baby green sea turtles mature for 60 days then break out of their shells using their temporary egg tooth and begin their ascent to the beach. Every day during turtle season, visitors can see these baby turtles breaking free and scampering over the sand to the sea.
