This wilderness area is the most important nesting site in the entire western half of the Caribbean for the green turtle (Cheloniamydas). Other species of sea turtles that also nest on the wide beaches of the parkland refuge are the leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea) and hawksbill (Eretmochelysimbricata). The park was formed by the coalescence of deltas that filled part of the ancient Nicaraguan Trench with their twisting, meandering riverbeds. The vast plain is dotted here and there with a few peaks and low cones, which are there mains of a small archipelago of volcanic origin.
