  • The Refugio de Vida Silvestre Camaronal was created in 1994 in order to protect the mangroves and wildlife, of the seven species of sea turtle that can be found throughout the world, four of them can be found on the shores of Playa Camaronal, including the Olive Ridley, the Atlantic leatherback, the Hawksbill and the black sea turtle. This refuge is part of the Tempisque Conservation Area, located on the Pacific coast of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. The uninhabited Camaronal beach is gray sand and blue waters, and extends 3 km between the mouth of the Punta Camaronal to the southeast of the beach. It has beautiful waves that range from moderate to strong, which in turn makes it a great destination for surfers, also lush vegetation, as it has retained much of its coastal vegetation, mainly at the mouth of the river, where mangrove vegetation and trees such as the black mountain wood, the Yellow Bark, the Guácimo, the Guapinol, the Pochote, the Ronrón, the Mahogany, the Espavé, the Balsa and the Ceibo predominate.

    For vacationers looking to participate in eco-tourism during their trip to Costa Rica, the Refugio de Vida Silvestre Camaronal should be a top priority. The Refuge offers a range of recreational activities to tourists of all interests, including surfing and fishing, but the site is perhaps best known for the important role it plays in the preservation of one of Costa Rica´s treasures, the sea turtle. In addition, to the sea turtle population, the Refugio de Vida Silvestre Camaronal is a fantastic place to bird watching and other animal species as well.
