Its amazing to see the turtles continue their existence like that, and how they do it! The tour guide however made it even more intersting with information which made you appreciate their annual ritual even more. Well done!

Hi All! I am wanting to do this experience over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, but will be by myself and was wondering 1) How do you arrange transportation to the site? I will be staying in Port of Spain and it looks like it is at least an hour and half drive to Matura from there. 2) How safe is it? I have read that personal safety can be an issue in POS and Trinidad. Thanks! :)
