Turtle Nesting Tour

Turtle Nesting Tour

Seeing the turtles lay their eggs is a unique experience and when it comes to the arrival it is even more because there are literally so many turtles that you can barely walk. Arrivals commonly occur at Ostional beach only 3 days a month based on tides and phase of the moon, however, the turtles themselves are the ones that decide, so the dates are unpredictable. Turtles always lay their eggs on the same beach, which is also the same where they were born, which makes the experience even more special. Depending on the time the guides, who will do everything possible to see turtles, will take them in case of arrival to the Ostional refuge or a fairly popular option is the Camaronal refuge where there are no arrivals, but you have good opportunities to see turtles in less quantity and even newborns

Just south of Playa Carrillo is Punta Islita, home to the Macaw Recovery Network (previously The Ara Project), a conservation organization dedicated to the survival of Costa Rica’s native macaws. Previously extinct in this area of Guanacaste, the Scarlet Macaw is now back! The site in Punta Islita is home to the organization’s Macaw Refuge and Breeding Center, where rescued or injured birds from both species that can not be released are kept for breeding purposes. Their young are then released into the wild. Over 50 Scarlet Macaws have been released, creating the now famous Wild Scarlet Macaw Reserve, a must see when visiting the Nicoya Peninsula.
