The Mexican Caribbean is an important nesting area for green, loggerhead and hawksbill turtles. In fact, seven of the world's eight species of sea turtle inhabit Mexican waters and lay their eggs on the nation's beaches. Sea turtles can lay three times a year and average 100 eggs each time.
When they are ready to hatch, we help the baby turtles out of the nest and care for them until nightfall — the optimal time to release them. This is where you come in. Once the sun sets, you'll be invited to take part in an experience of a lifetime by helping these baby sea turtles make their way safely to the ocean's edge.
Turtle season begins in May and winds down in November. If you're visiting during this time, be sure to contact the Concierge and find out how you can help.
