Turtle Nesting

During the months of October through March, see the Endangered Leather Back Turtles; or during the months of May through August, the smaller Ridley Turtles lay their eggs. An estimated 800 leatherback turtles nest here every year, but worldwide their population is dwindling. Park fees and donations aid in rescue and protection efforts; in Playa Junquillal we have a special project for nesting and freeing turtles, every year. Ask for more info!
