This adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness. However, in order to participate you must be able to walk unassisted on steep inclines for short distances, and you should be able to walk a minimum of one mile over sand and uneven terrain in the dark, as our itinerary involves walking the beach at night to look for turtle nesting sites. Please be prepared to stay up until 1 am or later in order to spend time with the turtles on the beach. Our accommodations at Posada Rancho Cerro Largo are set on the side of a cliff, so walking up and down steps over a fairly steep hillside is required to get to and from your cabana, and the steps are not very well-lit at night. Travelers should be aware that the heat and humidity may be very high, and roads may be bumpy.
