Olive Ridley Turtle Tour (Ostinal National Park)
Departure: 2:30 pm October, November & December (five days for month)
The best time to visit Ostional is just before and during an ARRIBADA. These occur, as a general rule (not always), at the start of the LAST Quarter MOON. The best months to see the biggest ARRIBADAS are between July and December.
After an undetermined waiting time, close to the last quarter of the moon cycle, the "arribada" will begin. At first, a few hundred turtles will come out on the beach, followed by a steady stream of animals for the next three days.
Arribadas" occur all through the year, at least once a month and, in some months, may occur twice. The months between June and December, during the rainy season, you could see larger "arribadas". That means that the number of nesting turtles may be in the range of hundreds of thousands as opposed to tens of hundreds for the dry season months. This tour is only offer when there is an “arribada” happening. Pick up time will depend on if there are turtles during the day or only at night.
