Juan Venado Island located near the town of Las Penitas is home to thousands of birds, crocodiles, sea turtles, crabs and other creatures that live in its waters. It’s possible to organise a kayak or a boat across the reserve. Juan Venado Island is home to the Olive Ridley turtle that lays its eggs between August and December. The best time to observe them is at night. We provide guides for the occasion so our nature enthusiasts wishing to witness the moment can spend the night on the island.
