Paslamas Turtles at La Flor, Nicaragua

South of San Juan del Sur, La Flor is one of the most beautiful beaches on the pacific coast of Nicaragua. There are no hotels or restaurants next to. It's necessary to take food and drink along when paying a visit to it. The egg laying reaches it's maximum inbetween August and Novembre These turtles lay roughly 100 eggs and burry them under the sand so that the sun keeps them warm. The eggs which find themselves. In the most hot part of the nest, will turn out female, the others males. The young, that hatch after 7 weeks, have to find a lot of energy to cross that stretch of beach to the sea to keep away from the dangers of preying animals and also from mankind.
