About Turtle Volunteering
Monterrico sits at the heart of the Biotopo Monterrico–Hawaii, a nature reserve that embraces a 20km-long beach, blessed slice of the Pacific coast and includes a vital turtle-nesting ground, abundant wetlands and the small villages of Monterrico and Hawaii.
Depending your choice of program your time will be split between our base at El Delfin Hotel in the heart of Monterrico and ARCAS wildlife & turtle sanctuary 3km up the road in Hawaii.
Each month, during weeks 2 & 4 our volunteers move to Hawaii beach for a placement at ARCAS wildlife & turtle sanctuary. Here our efforts are centered around sea turtles and the hatchery (in season) and rehabilitation efforts for other species cared for here.
