Reserva Playa Tortuga

Nature Reserve in Ojochal

Set up in 2009 by Costa Rican scientists, this excellent program conducts several important projects, including an inventory of local mammals, a monitoring of scarlet macaw and crocodilian populations in the reserve, a butterfly garden and educational outreach to children on the importance of protecting wildlife. Volunteers are welcome. The reserve office is along the public road to Playa Tortuga.
