  • Between February and may, the waltz of turtles is continuous on this beach. The person who led our tour told us this week was a week digging, because it is to say that there are opportunities not see small turtles was born the last massive ponte was less of 60 days. On the other hand, there are daily spawns of turtles. Actually, we ran into a quarantine of turtles! This isn't a big day but it was already very impressive! The home page, there are several sandbags full of eggs because when some turtles lay, she dig up the eggs just before. To preserve, the guardians pick them and put them in sand bags labeled (date of spawning etc). It happens so that small turtles are born of her bags and hospitality agent put them in a basket so that visitors can bring the babies to the sea. They are not very courageous, but be aware they are one to two days to get out of their egg and out of the sand!

  • Watch the show natural spawning is truly an exciting experience. See the turtles arrive by sea, spawn and covering it up before returning to the sea ... all under the moonlight .... feel part of nature, natural cycles, of life itself. The reserve is accessible from Saint John in approximately 40-45 minutes with media (ours was a truck with wooden seats outdoors). You can only use red lights so as not to disturb and disorient the turtles. You must read the rules before entering the reserve, though (the only sore point) some tourists have continued talking loud (it was politely requested to the contrary) and seemed more interested in drinking the beers flow rates even at the beach, rather they observe the fantastic event of arribadas (seen dozens and dozens of turtles ... we do have views about 160).
