Along the beach are leatherback turtles. Unlike other turtles, this species has no hard shell, but rather a black, leathery skin with ridges running lengthwise. It is the epitome of a nomad and loves to eat poisonous jellyfish. These turtles take over the beach during nesting season from November to April. They dig their nests one meter deep, lay their eggs, cover it with sand and return to the sea. After 60 to 90 days, the hatchlings emerge and make their way to the water. Only a few survive the crabs, sea birds and various mammals waiting to prey on them.

The sun shines between 11 and 12 hours a day during the dry season from December to April and the temperature averages about 27.7 degrees celcius. Normally the mornings are sunny and rain rolls in in the afternoons. The heaviest rains are in September through November.
