Watch Sea Turtles Lay Eggs in Playa Ostional
Each month around the last quarter moon, something called arribada happens at Playa Ostional. Arribada is a massive gathering of egg-laying turtles that draws an equally massive crowd. People come from all over to watch the sea turtles swim up the beach, guided by the light of the moon, to lay their eggs. Watching the sea turtles lay their eggs is a great family activity to do at night after dinner!
