We stumbled upon this Dec. 2011. We now take all of our guests here for a rare experience. The turtle release starts around early Dec. into early January. You can watch (maybe even help) dig up the turtles. Sometimes 50+ tutles in each nest. Then you'll be able to watch the release as they make their way to the sea. Great photo opportunites. Releases happen at dawn and at dusk. Great beach, not very many people. Bring drinks and snacks. The drive is a bit long down a dirt road. Great for bird and Iguana sightings. Be sure to leave a donation. It goes to a very good cause. Just in the last year we have seen the donation monies put to good use and necessary upgrades for their facility. We are moving back to the states and we will greatly miss spending our christmas day (and several other days) with the turtles. DON'T MISS THIS EXPERIENCE.
