  • Perfect place to observe the spawning of giant turtles during the night and walk around in the various channels of the Park watching crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas, etc. .. The beach is relatively dangerous due to currents and the possibility of sharks appear. I would advise a 2 nights stay in place.

  • We visited the National Park at night since we were in August and spawning of sea turtles, it was an experience that leaves you speechless, see the whole process of spawning of sea turtles is something that must be live and who does not forget in life, those beings huge living that remain in a trance while performing the process of life is tremendously impressive. If you go in August this is the excursion it can not miss. By day it is a quite nice beach since it has enough vegetation and is a beautiful landscape.
