In search of new horizons and old turtle traps in Manuel Antonio
Looking for centuries-old “turtle traps” on the beaches of Manuel Antonio, we found trees scratched by ocelots, saw two-headed butterflies and contemplated a premature demise while cliff-climbing.
We also got an in-depth lesson from two expert guides and dedicated environmentalists on the maritime zone, roughly defined as a law meant to protect the coastline that is flouted as often as it is followed.
And finally, we solved the mystery of how and why anyone would make a trap out of rocks.
Join the adventure in the second story of our package on Quepos/Manuel Antonio, part of the series “Costa Rica’s Greatest Places.” Read the full story in Travel.
