Matapalo Beach is one of the countrys most popular nesting areas for three species of sea turtles in Costa Rica. Every year, from July to December, hundreds of Pacific Green, Olive Ridley, and Hawksbill sea turtles hatch along the pristine Matapalo coastline.

To commemorate the hatching, every November a turtle festival is held, with turtle patrol tours, music, traditional Costa Rican foods, dancing, and contests.

Houck also emphasizes the hard work of the volunteers during the long process leading up to the release of the turtles; the Association of Volunteers for Services in Protected Areas (ASVO), hosts volunteers from around the world who assist in providing for the protection and care of turtles and their eggs, keeping them safe from predators and human looting. He states, from creating the refuges, to building nests for the eggs, to cleaning and patrolling the sites, there is a lot of hard work that goes into protecting these wonderful creatures. Its an experience we love our guests to be able to see.

This work has been a success, with an average of eighty per one hundred eggs hatched from the thousands that are laid on the beaches of Matapalo annually.

We love to keep our guests informed on these kinds of events that are for a worthy cause and an enriching experience, concludes Houck.

Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica (PRWEB) September 12, 2014

Tulemar Vacation Homes, the top-rated resort in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, invites guests to participate in the unique Independence Day celebrations taking place September 15th.

On this important day, Costa Rica is filled with pride and joy, celebrating the anniversary of a free and sovereign country, commemorating the independence of Central America as a whole from Spain in 1821.

Streets and homes are filled with patriotic colors; red, representing love of life, generosity, and the blood shed for freedom, white, representing peace, and blue, for the countrys beautiful seas and blue skies.

Tulemar Vacation Homes in Manuel Antonio says that Independence Day celebrations are a great way for visitors to learn something new about the country and observe some of the unique customs. We love this holiday, its such a wonderful time to feel the unity and pride of this country, says Dave Houck, owner of Tulemar Vacation Homes Rentals & Sales.

At 6:00 PM, the national anthem is broadcast through TV and radio stations, followed by the faroles parade, a parade where school children carry homemade lanterns representing the original freedom torch. The children dress in traditional attire and perform dances, and fireworks end the night.

On the following morning of September 15th more parades take place; school bands fill the streets, dressed in patriotic colors and marching to the beat of their drums. Costa Ricans sit on the sidewalks enjoying the colorful processions that last through the afternoon. Typical Costa Rican food is usually sold at food stands set up along the streets.

Its a beautiful day for guests to participate in the celebration if they want to really experience Costa Rican culture, and anyone who is visiting this weekend should consider attending, concludes Houck.
