Turtles in a Torrential Downpour
, Oct. 2021
We were picked up in Terramindo. The car was a small echo Toyota. This car has 2 wheel drive which was not appropriate for the long journey on the unpaved and rutted road. In addition, the driver did not speak English, and with our limited Spanglish, we had difficulty communicating. This was evident when we had a terrifying experience stuck on a one lane bridge amidst a torrential downpour and a rising river. Thankfully, the driver had cell phone service, and we told him to call the operator of this tour in Playa Ostinal. The tour guide towed our car thru the river, and provided us shelter for the night. We are thankful to make it out of this tour alive and on terra firma. We did see the turtles early in the morning before departing. Definitely ask for a 4-wheel drive car.

Sorry to hear that you didn’t like the experience. But I’m happy to hear that you saw the turtles. Since you booked the turtle tour during the rainy season it can happen that it starts raining very heavily and the roads fill up with water. Not even a 4-wheel drive car can pass those rivers. The weather and the rain is not in my control.
Not in Ostional (this time) but on Playa Minas
, Mar. 2020
Unfortunately Ostional was closed due to Corona. I was offered a full refund or a discount to make the tour to another beach. I chose the latter. The tour starts a bit later as Playa Minas is a lot closer than Ostional. I went at a bad time as the full moon had been two days earlier. Wasn't able to see any full grown turtles but was lucky enough to see 9 hatchlings and got to experience their release into the ocean. The beach itself is a 10 minute walk from the car park, you can do it in sandals but easier in sneakers. You should avoid using white clothes and obviously no flash on the beach. My tour guide was very nice, spoke good english and made sure I had everything ok!
