Description

On this eco tour you will be driven about 30 minutes away from Zihuatanejo to a sea turtle farm, where you will have the opportunity to dig a couple of baby sea turtles. Each of the clients will take a few turtle out of the nest, once all the baby turtles are out of the sand, they will be kept in a plastic container with a little bit of sand until they wake up, it normally takes about 30 minutes to wake up.

After the Baby Turtles wake up, all of the participants will take their babies to the beach a few feet away from the ocean water and they will be put down in the sand all.

As soon as the Baby Turtles touch the sand they will start to walk towards the ocean some faster than other, it will be an unforgeable experience to witness the walk that they to the ocean and to know that you help survive this beautiful creatures.

This experience will be a great way to learn about the ocean turtles that always come back to Mexico to have their babies born.

Our guide, Luis, was fantastic! He speaks English very well, he is very knowledgeable of Mexican history and world affairs, he takes time to explain the local culture, and truly wants you to enjoy your experience. Seeing the baby sea turtles was an experience we’ll never forget, it was so fun to hold them and see them crawl out sea. The people at the farm are very nice and helpful and informative about the turtles and how our actions affect our ecosystems. Luis does other tours as well and we will definitely be contacting him for future trips, and telling others about him. He also knows all the really good restaurants in town that the locals visit!

What an awesome experience. First, Luis was a great guide, and he owns the business. He ensured we went at the right time for the sea turtles, free of predators. He always had interesting morsels of information, and his English was excellent. A former software engineer, he took over his father's tour business. He and his wife have a passion for making sure your experience is great. I also did the Street Food Tour - also incredible. Highly recommended!!
