An intricate network of jungle canals, lagoons, and beaches is contained within this remote, 47,000-acre coastal presere—and it's accessible only by boat or by plane. But if you make the journey during the months of early March through mid-October, you’ll be rewarded with the sight of hawksbill, loggerhead, giant leatherback, and green sea turtles coming ashore to nest and lay their eggs. Visitors must be accompanied by a licensed guide.
