Turtle “Arribada” At Ostional

Thousands of turtles arrived this monday at Ostional beach in Guanacaste.

Turtles nest at Ostional year round, but peak time is during rainy season. Over the course of a five-day “arribada” (arrival) nesting turtles will leave up to 10 million eggs on the beach.

The largest arribada thus far recorded in Ostional, took place in November 1995 when a calculated 500,000 females came ashore.
