This place is NOT the eco-friendly paradise that it claims to be! The owner, Sylvester Feichtinger, is also the owner of Agropecuaria Caletas S.A. This is the farming company that is totally destroying the wetland beside the Caletas-Arío National Wildlife Refuge! Mr. Feichtinger has repeatedly harrasseed the sea turtle volunteers in the refuge, and his antics are getting out of hand. He recently had his employees destroy the freshwater well that the sea turtle volunteers used! He also had the area aerially sprayed with toxic chemicals that impacted both the volunteer workers as well as the wildlife. Countless dead fish washed up on this critical nesting beach after the spraying occurred. This has all been video-documented by the workers at the reserve, and many people from around the world have written letters of protest to the government about these issues.
