Thousands of turtles nest on Costa Rica beach

Video: thousands of sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs on the coast of Costa Rica. The incredible scenes were filmed by local wildlife experts in north-western Guanacaste. The turtles return to the beaches along the Pacific coast to nest and lay their eggs. Up to 5,000 turtles came ashore this year in the annual wildlife phenomenon called Arribada or arrival by sea. Tourists are advised to stay away and not interfere with the nesting.
