Sea Turtle Release in Puerto Escondido

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 30.00
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    You will be picked up at 5pm from your Puerto Escondido hotel. Board a comfortable van and head north on the main road for about 8 minutes. You will then take a detour to Palmarito Beach. This is a beautiful virgin beach located about 10 minutes away from the city.

    Once you get there, you will head to the turtle camp site where a local guide will greet you and provide you with full information about the camp and the work being done to protect and save sea turtles. Right before sunset, you will be getting ready to say goodbye to the turtles as you appreciate the gorgeous landscape from the beach. See, hold and help the newly hatched turtles get to the water to start their amazing adventure into the sea.

    After you have released the turtles, you will head back to the hotel filled with wonderful memories of this experience.

    I expected a tour--with information and at least a superficial engagement with the turtle consveration. Instead, we had a host rather than a tour guide and he was far more interested in social media ops, talking about surfing and weather, and hyping up the van...More

    We loved this tour! We hadn’t realised we got to name and release a little turtle ourselves, which made the experience so much more amazing! Also our guide Miguel was the best 😊
