Itinerary

We leave as early as possible, because its an average 2:30 hour drive to reach the beach.

On arrival at Monterrico, we'll walk around some of the restaurants, hotels and bars to find a place you like to stay around that day.

After finding a suitable place, the beach is yours to have fun.

SEASONAL (August to February): by 05:00 PM the local sea turtle nursery offers you the opportunity to participate in the daily "sea turtle liberation", where the newborn turtles are set free on the beach so they can reach the ocean, its a very special activity. You can sponsor as many turtles as you wish for a small fee (Q. 10 = $. 1. 35 USD) per turtle, and you personally get to set them free.

And by the late afternoon we return the city, arriving around 8:30 PM.
