The most famous beach south of San Juan del Sur is the La Flor beach
This beach is a protected wildlife reserve because of the vast arrival of Olive Ridley turtles during massive arrivals that take place every year between August and January. Thousands of turtles arrive during certain nights to lay eggs at this one specific beach.
About 50 days later, hundreds of thousands of eggs hatch and the baby turtles try to make their way to the ocean. Both truly unique events, the egg-laying and the hatching, can be seen at the La Flor beach. You will be told if the turtle activity is worthwhile and will be transferred to La Flor beach to witness the event.
