Located on Playa Grande, the park encompasses the entire beach and adjacent land. It is a favorite beach among surfers and bird watchers. However from October through March the park is the nesting place of various species of turtles, including the critically endangered leatherback turtles. Tours led by park rangers are best enjoyed after sunset. Be prepared to to wait while the turtle makes its way to dry land. During an hour or two, watch as the turtle lays 80 to 90 eggs, bury them in sand and then slowly makes its way back to sea. We are happy to arrange a tour for you.
