Tortuguero, means "place of the turtles". This Costa Rican seaside is the largest green sea turtle nesting area in the Western Hemisphere. The number of green sea turtles had dwindled, but is now increasing, once again. It is hoped that the numbers grow to make a reality of a legend, that there were so many turtles, you could walk to shore on their shells.
