Playa Grande is just a small area of the larger park itself and the beach is one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica. Because the beach is located within a national park, and because it is so important to the nesting Leatherback sea turtles, certain housing regulations apply. Construction of ocean view condos, houses, and villas was and is set back from the beach, making Playa Grande one of the most preserved beaches in all of Costa Rica. No one is allowed on the beach at night, unless accompanied by a national park guide, so as not to disturb the sea turtles from coming on land. It is advised that when you walk along the beach during the day, you walk along the waterline, leaving the soft, loose sand further back undisturbed so as not walk where there may be eggs. Lights on ocean view condos, houses, and villas are positioned so that the light doesn’t affect the moonlight, which the turtles use to find their way to the water after the eggs hatch.
