“Playa Grande is home to a remarkable natural phenomena that takes place annually right on its sands. The Leatherback Turtles (Las Baulas), an endangered species, make their way to the beach en masse each year to bury their eggs in the white sand. The park was founded to protect these magnificent creatures and their reproduction process”
