La Tortuga Feliz

COVID-19 & La Tortuga Feliz

As the COVID-19 pandemic and related international travel restrictions escalate, we have experienced total volunteer cancellations for the coming months. 

As you are aware we are 100% dependent not only on volunteers physical participation but also financial. 

Our concerns, as always, are the turtles and local community at Pacuare that without your support will be impacted greatly.

We are reaching out to you as a previous volunteer and supporters of La Tortuga Feliz with the hope that you can form part of the solution to a problem that current world events are forcing upon us.

We are mindful that you are also experiencing interruptions and uncertainty so we appreciate fully any help you can offer at this time.


We are hoping, with your generosity, to pay the local guides and operational costs for the next couple of months. This will allow us to continue to operate  in order to be prepared for the high point of the leatherback season. 

From all at Pacuare, we wish you and your families the very best during this time and  take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for considering supporting our efforts.


P.S. As this platform is not available in Costa Rica we had to arrange it through the UK.
