We are a working reserve established in 1989 with almost 2000 acres of tropical forest and 6Kms of beach, which is the most important nesting sites in Costa Rica of the endangered leatherback turtle.
From March to July every visitor is invited to join us during the turtle census and witness at close range the nesting process - an unforgettable experience for all who have seen it. From June to September thousands of baby leatherback turtles hatch. Yet another great spectacle of nature to behold. Pacuare Reserve and the surrounding canals are rich in wildlife with over 300 recorded species of animals; 3 species of monkeys, over 200 species of birds, and rarer species such as jaguar and ocelot. Pacuare Reserve has a north and a south station, from which the scientific and investigation activities are coordinated.
Pacuare Reserve is under the stewardship of Ecology Project International and is a not for profit organization. All proceeds go straight back to the Reserve. With your visit, you directly support our work on behalf of the turtles and all the other species that have found refuge at Pacuare Reserve.
EPI needs your help to ensure the thousands of species of flora and fauna that call Pacuare home remain protected. We think it’s worth protecting. Do you? Help by donating: https://yomeuno.com/costa-rica/organi...
