Sea Turtle protection programs in Mexico's Riviera Nayarit

Sea Turtles and baby sea turtle releases are a major attraction to visitors in Riviera Nayarit as thousands of Olive Ridley Turtles who were born on the region’s beaches return every year to build nests and lay their eggs to perpetuate their cycle of life.

The challenge for the hatchlings is their journey from sandy beach to the sea while avoiding predators including birds and iguanas.

Turtle farms dedicated to the harvesting, hatching and releasing of baby sea turtles are a fascinating interactive attraction that delights visitors with an interactive educational and emotional experience.

There are several Sea Turtle Adventure excursions and Baby Sea Turtle Release programs available, including one that combines a Crocodile Adventure that pays a visit to “El Quelele”, a marshy lagoon where the American Crocodiles exist in a safe, protected environment.
