Ocean Ports of Call

Curu - Costa Rica Highlights:
Biological Reserve, Rare animals and birds
The Curu Biological Reserve, on the Peninsula de Nicoya of Costa Rica, offers diverse wildlife from white faced monkeys to phantom crabs. It is a 207 acre private wildlife sanctuary where you can see wildlife in 5 distinct habitats, from mangrove lagoons to hill forests. Three miles of shoreline are dotted with tiny coves and 3 white-sand beaches. 232 species of birds have been counted in the refuge, including motmots, white-fronted amazons, laughing hawks, woodpeckers and herons. Among the mammals are rare species such as ocelots, pumas, margay cats and anteaters. Even the reintroduction of spider monkeys, scarlet macaws, and sloths seems to be successful.

On the beach leatherback-, pacific ridley and hawksbill turtles lay their eggs. Of vital importance to the marine ecosystem is the fascinating habitat of the mangrove swamps. An immense number of small organisms living in the nutrient-rich mud of these swamps build the basis of the marine food chain. Here are the breeding grounds of many Pacific fish, and crowds of water birds feed and nest in the thickets. All five of Costa Rica's mangrove species are represented in Curu.
