Curu National Wildlife Refuge is a small privately-owned sanctuary at the southeast end of the Nicoya Peninsula. It is particularly interesting because it has five distinct habitats: semi-deciduous forest, decidulous forest, hill forest, mangrove lagoon and shore woodlands. Wildlife includes monkeys, deer, iguanas, agoutis, large cats, andother mammals. Sea turtles nest on Curu's beaches and tidal pools are rich in marine life.
