Turtle Watching Tours

The Ostional Wildlife Refuge in Costa Rica was created in 1984 to protect one of the world’s most important nesting sites of the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle. It is the site for a rarely seen biological wonder. The week before the new moon, hundreds of sea turtles come to one specific mile of beach to dig their eggs into the black volcanic sand. Turtles nest at Ostional year round but peak time occurs from August through December. The phenomenon of “arribadas” (mass nesting) occurs regularly once or twice a month.

Nosara Refuge for Wildlife & International Animal Rescue

Founded in January of 1999, this refuge has been a place for the injured, displaced and orphaned wildlife from Nosara and the Nicoya Peninsula region of Costa Rica. You can visit the Refuge by advanced reservation (as a health precaution to the animals, the Refuge requires visitors to be in Costa Rica for at least 3 days before visiting). Your visit will include a tour of the Refuge facilities and an opportunity to meet up close many of the current “guests” in residence.
