Parco Nazionale Marino di LAS BAULAS - Playa Grande Costa Rica

Costa Rica Playa Grande Turtles Tours:
Las Baulas National Marine Park. Here you will begin your guided nocturnal tour with one of the park rangers.

In a small group you walk silently down the beach with only the stars and moon to light your way. You will feel as though you have traveled back in time. It won't take long before you come upon an enormous creature slowly emerging from the surf. Imagine how far both you and the turtle have traveled to finally meet on this secluded shore. Then begins the hour long nesting ritual that can be observed from beginning to end. This wonderful experience will be something you will always remember.

There are turtles at Playa Grande all year 'round. The nesting season for the giant leatherback turtle is October through March when they can be seen every night. Up to 100 of these dinosauric (max.to1800 lbs.) sea creatures have been spotted nesting at one time. Beginning in early January it is normal to see the 4 inch baby turtles emerging from the sand and making their way to the ocean. Experts consider this nesting beach to be one of the most important in the Occidental Pacific. Right up the street is the Turtle museum. The kids will love it. You can shop there, or our small gift shop, for local handicrafts or take a tour to an artisan's village which specializes in Indian pottery.

Be a friend to the leatherback:
