Our base in Playa Grande is nestled inside 'Las Baulas' national park. This location offers many opportunities to meet the fantastic dinosaur-like turtles named Baulas (Leatherback). There is a guided tour on the beach organized by the national park service which is available September through February. This tour is so popular that often tours will fill up. When this happens, we organize a guided tour to a nearby beach (about 5 miles away) with our Monkey Rover.
Playa da Minas is our favorite location to see Liuto turtles, as this is where they lay their eggs from September till June.
Tours start at sunset, around 6:00 pm and go until 9/10pm depending on the turtles.
