ESTUARIES AND WILDLIFE

 

Only a few hundred yards south of the property there is an estuary, Estero San Miguel, that fills and empties with the tides. It’s a great place to swim and watch wildlife. Howler monkeys are frequently seen (and heard!)

 

There is a much larger estuary, Estero Coyote, with a small fishing harbor farther south, that runs several kilometers inland. There are boats for touring the estuary or going fishing.

 

There are two turtle conservation stations, one in San Miguel, the other in Caletas, next to Playa Coyote. In July and August, you can see the “Arribadas,” when turtles arrive to lay their eggs on the beach. Another great experience is to watch the eggs hatch and see all the newborn turtles swim to the ocean.
