Sea Turtle Encounter
Join in on our sea turtle conservation efforts in Puerto Vallarta. During the summertime, volunteers at the coast of Banderas Bay give refuge to the mother sea turtle that leave the security of the ocean and venture onto land to undertake in one of the most vital stages of their lives. These turtles travel to land to lay their eggs in the warm sandy beaches.To ensure the proper incubation and hatching of their eggs. Once their eggs begin to hatch, the mother turtles begin their trek back to the ocean, leaving their hatchlings to make their journey to the water on their own.
