Your intrepid Jaco hotel blogger loaded his surf kayak onto his bicycle trailer and hauled out to the south end of Hermosa beach where you will find the Tulin Refuge. The road gets sandy at the end. Its fine in a car, but a bike with a heavy trailer is a trick. You gots to gear down and spin.
But I digress. When I arrived at the Tulin Turtle Refuge, I discovered our local sea turtle hot spot has a new Jefe. If you are in the area, please join me in welcoming Don Belfort Cubillo, the new administrator of Refugio Tulin-Punta Mala. Don Belfort is clearly going to run a tight ship and has already made some much needed improvements to the volunteer facilities at the refuge.
Don Belfort has made arrangements with Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce so that they can receive any donations people want to make to refuge. The volunteer accomodations out there are pretty rough. With nicer facilities, we would get more volunteers here over time, and those adorable and helpless little turltes need all the help they can get.
More information will be coming soon, so please stay tuned to the Jaco hotel blog.
