Welcome to Parismina
For those intrepid enough to make the journey, Parismina is also a great place to view turtles and aid in their conservation while avoiding the crowds of Tortuguero. Though fewer turtle species and numbers nest here, it's possible to spot leatherbacks between late February and early October, and green turtles between June and September. Hawksbills have been seen between February and September. There's also a turtle hatchery, at which volunteers can help guard the eggs. Sportfishing is the other traditional tourist draw in this area.
