This association based near Morillo focuses its attention on the conservation of turtles and reforestation of the Mata Oscura mangrove. For a small fee, the affable couple in charge can take you on a tour through the mangroves or through the forest up to a waterfall, where you can see strawberry poison dart frogs. Kayaks are available as well.

AAPEQ also accepts volunteers for turtle conservation and path maintenance. As staff are often out of range of cell service, have patience in making contact.
