Turtle Release, Juan Venado Island

This is a wonderful tour, where we’re witness how life begins at sea of one of the most interesting animals of the ocean, sea turtles. The tour begins when the transport picks up the people in their hostels to leave at Las Peñitas beach (30 minutes approx.), Where the boat, the captain and the local guide of the area wait for us, who take us in a tour with the plan to visit a life preservation project of this interesting animal, a small baby turtles nursery, where turtle eggs collected on the beach of Juan Venado island are located, this nursery is always guarded to avoid the human hand and the presence of naturals predators, this way ensuring that the largest number of turtles reach the seawater. The release occurs with the sunset, so before the release you have a relaxing time where you can swim in the refreshing waves of the sea. The release is made only with the sunset to avoid the presence of sea birds in the waters and thus give more opportunities for survival to baby turtles. We return to the city at 7pm approx.

Note: this tour is offered in season only, between September at January.
