Sea turtle


Playa Ostional is valuable to sea turtles because it has a slight incline ending in a platform and an estuary, which is important because the exchange of nutrients between the river and the sea are used by the returning sea turtles to recognize the beach.


may be Olive Ridley turtle, which are the most common on this beach.
