  • This wild area was created in order to provide protection to leatherback turtle populations that come to nest at Playa Grande, Ventanas and Langosta. Encompassing an area of roughly 445 hectares of mangrove swamps and coastline, the Parque Marino Las Baulas is made up of four beaches: Playa Grande, Playa Langosta, Playa Ventanas and Playa Carbon. The two mangrove estuaries in the park are the Estero de Tamarindo and Estero de San Francisco, the former of which is the biggest mangrove estuary in Latin America. This national park also extends 12 miles off shore as well, to protect the sea turtles from poachers and tourists alike. The fauna is not very abundant except for the leatherback turtle, but other species can be observed, such as the bald fox, the deer, the congo monkey, the coyote and the raccoon. Being a marine area, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates are abundant.

    In order to see the turtle you will have to go on a tour with a certified guide, without a guide you will not be allowed on the beach at night, as this is when the turtles come to nest. The Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas is a great place to visit with family, this park also has a turtle museum and certified night tours during the turtle nesting season
