Marino Ballena National Park, as one might guess from its name, is in large part a sea-based reserve which plays host to whales several months a year. Humpback whales come each year to mate during December through April.

The months of May through November offer the opportunity to view Olive Ridley and Hawksbill sea turtles paying night visits to the shore. They walk/waddle as much as 100 feet onto shore, dig holes with their back feet/fins, lay hundreds of eggs, and return to the sea after carefully covering their future offspring with sand.

The largest coral reef on the pacific coast of Central America can also be encountered here, making this an ideal snorkeling spot before, after or while whale/dolphin/turtle-watching.
