Ostional Turtle Lodge
Are there any turtles? That is the question on everybody’s mind before visiting the Ostional Wildlife Refuge in Guanacaste Costa Rica. Olive Ridley Turtles nest both alone and in arribadas.
An arribada is the coming ashore of an average of 200,000 female turtles in over a week period for nesting purposes. The biggest arribadas occur between july and November which are the peak of the rainy season.
It is a small lodge very close to the beaches main entrance, where there is a guided tour of turtles nesting and hatching. Arribadas are unpredictable, so the best way to know if there are any turtles or hatchings is to call the Lodge for current information.
The rooms are comfortable, with hot water, A/C and wireless internet, there is also a mini fridge safe box and a coffee maker. The rancho or common area overlooks the mangrove protected by the refuge and has hammocks and a sitting area, surrounded by water in the rainy season is the perfect place to relax with a book.
