It is a beach and a national wild life refuge, located in the Nicoya Peninsula, Santa Cruz, Guanacaste.

It makes up one of the most important areas of Costa Rica and the world, for the olive ridley sea turtle nesting. The beach is host to massive, simultaneous nesting for thousands of sea turtles.

The leatherback turtle and green turtle of the Pacific come to the beach occasionally to lay their eggs. This makes it a rare place in Costa Rica, where you can observe the turtle nesting all year.

Because of its spectacular and substantial waves, this beach is a favorite for surfers.
