Turtle Release In Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board
October 1 2013

Anyone that has ever participated in the releasing of turtles at one of Puerto Vallarta’s beautiful beaches have always left with a pleasant feeling and great memories.

In Puerto Vallarta, turtle release season begins in June. One can enjoy this unmatched experience at hotels like CasaMagna Marriott, Fiesta Americana, Presidente Intercontinental, Westin Resort, Dreams and Velas Vallarta to name a few.

The main objective of releasing these young creatures, keeping in mind their vulnerability against natural predators and the importance of their safety in Mexico, is to create awareness amongst ‘release’ participants and convey the importance maintaining this and other species safe. Participants also get a chance to witness nature’s miracle of life everyday.

It’s events like these that allow tourists and locals alike to feel part of these efforts, changing the way we view nature.

Orientation begins with an informational chat just before releasing the baby turtles. The importance of maintaining these sea turtles safe is stressed. A brief description of what is next for these tiny creatures follows.

If you would like to participate in the releasing of sea turtles, please contact one of the hotels mentioned above to confirm plans to release on any given day.
