Costa Rica Picture of the Day – Each day the Costa Rican Times will be including a picture from around Costa Rica to see the natural beauty and amazing things that we get to see each day in the land of the Pura Vida.
Costa Rica is a small country,but with great natural wealth. It has 28 national parks and biological reserves that harbor hundreds of species of birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians, insects and plants.
The beach offers a shelter to preserve sea turtles. Playa Hermosa is a refuge that protects turtles and several habitats for other species.
This beach is the secondary nesting site in Costa Rica for Olive Ridley, one of the smallest sea turtles. Their nesting season occurs from June to November, and September, October and November is when you can see the largest number of turtles.
Nesting behavior depends largely on the weather and other conditions, visitors interested in observing sea turtles should always check with the park staff in advance.
