Turtle "Arribada": Olive Ridley Sea Turtle Nesting Sites

The beaches located in Nosara are a part of the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge, which is renowned for its large turtle “arribadas” that occur each month. This area is considered to be one of the most significant nesting sites globally for the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle. As a result, Playa Guiones, Pelada, Nosara, Garza, and the surrounding beaches are protected by law.
