We read the reviews and went out to see the refuge but when we got to the end of the road we knew something was not right as the farming showed more road where there was now sand and driftwood. It got washed away in a storm and is no more. The government has closed the beaches farther south and there is no more volunteers.

The refuge all the way at the end of the beach is a great trip through a one-lane dirt road, bobbing and weaving through palms. Turtle eggs in the ground so not much to see, but picked up a couple nice coconuts for later and made our way all the way to the river at the end of Hermosa beach.

My wife and I visited this refuge during each of our last 2 trips to Costa Rica. Did not know about the turtle releases, but we saw lots of interesting birds, including a wood stork, lots of Northern Jacana's, Yellow Headed Caracaras, as well as many types of herons and egrets.
During rainy season you need a 4WD vehicle if you plan to drive through this refuge.

Tour guides very knowlegable. Be careful of parking and guide wanna-bes
