Nicoya Peninsula

On the Nicoya Peninsula or also called “Guanacaste” we offer various different project locations for our turtle conservation projects: Refugio Romelia, Bahia de los Piratas (Nombre del Jesus), and Camaronal.

Each beach is in a more secluded less populated area – those areas are preferred by the turtles.

San Isidro del General

One of our project locations is San Isidro del General in the canton of Perez Zeledon in the southern part of the province of San Jose in Costa Rica. It is also the biggest city in Perez Zeledon. The city is located at 130 km from San Jose and 212 km from the boarder to Panama in the South. It’s a diverse and culturally rich city. In San Isidro we offer our Spanish School program – one of the best and most affordable programs in the country! We also offer the Dog and Cat Rescue project here.

Corcovado National Park

Corcovado National Park is one of our project locations and is a beautiful remote location surrounded by pristine jungle and beautiful picture perfect beaches. We offer the National Park project here as well as one Turtle Project in La Leona Ranger Station.

 

South Pacific

The Pacific Coast of Costa Rica consists of beautiful long beaches with surf break and high mountainous areas with amazing views. Here we offer the Biological Research Center in Ojochal as well as a Turtle Conservation Project in Playa Matapalo by Quepos.

 

 

Carribean Coast

Our turtle season is half of the year on the Carribean Coast, and around a half a year on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. From February until July turtles arrive on the beaches around the Northern Carribean area of Costa Rica, near Tortuguero (hence the name from “tortuga” which is Spanish for turtle). Bautiful sandy beaches, palm trees, jungle – river systems.. and of course the sea turtle projects are the main highlights of this area.
