Nestled along the shimmering Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Ostional National Park is a protected area along Costa Rica’s Pacific coast and a haven for nature-lovers and adventure-seekers alike. Covering both land and sea, the park was established in 1984 to protect one of the largest nesting sites for Olive Ridley sea turtles in the world. If you visit between July and November each year, you might even be lucky enough to witness the tens of thousands of turtles that visit the beach each year to lay their eggs. In addition to these sweet, shelled creatures, every corner of Ostional National Park
is alive with the rainbow hues of exotic flora and fauna, from its dense mangrove swamps to its twinkling pristine beaches. Think swinging monkeys, snapping crocs and a vibrant variety of bird and plant species. With winding hiking trails that meander through the coastal forest, the whole area provides plenty of opportunities for wildlife spotting and birdwatching. Whether you choose to time your visit with the arrival of the turtles or plan to adventure through the lush landscape, Ostional National Park is a must-visit destination for nature lovers and those interested in conservation.
