Playa Cabuyal at one with nature
"I spent two months here in 2017 oct and nov. The project location is isolated and rustic but the experiences were priceless. I saw many turtles mainly ridleys and some green turtles. I was involved in nest relocation and assisting in tagging and data recording. We also saw crocodiles, monkeys, snakes and many types of birds on a regular basis.
