One of the most profound ecological experiences you can have on the Nicoya Peninsula is experiencing the mass inland migration of several species of turtle. Each year, over 500,000 female giant leatherback, Pacific Green and Olive Ridley turtles come ashore to nest at this reserve. While nesting does occur all year round, it hits its peak during rainy season. The best time to catch an arridaba (mass arrival of as many as 20,000 turtles in one evening) is the three to five days around the new moon, between August and November. All tours take place at night, between 8pm and 4am.
Diria National Park is a premontane tropical wet forest, which means things are cooler, wetter and it is located at a higher altitude. These favourable conditions create the perfect transition zone for animals and birds forced to leave dry lowlands in search of food and water.
The park is home to 140 species of bird, 380 species of tree and an amazing array of butterflies. Hike to one of the park’s waterfalls for a refreshing dip, while keeping an eye out for the park’s inhabitants, which include deer, reptiles, boar and jaguarundis.
