Sea Turtle Release Season

From the verdant jungles to the magnificent ocean, the natural environment provides the best options for what to do in Puerto Vallarta, and being part of a baby sea turtle release is one of the most miraculous experiences you can have. As sea turtles start to lay their eggs in the summer, local biologists and volunteers work to transport the nests from heavily trafficked public beaches to secure campsites. Once the eggs are ready to hatch, they invite the public out to learn about this endangered species and release newly hatched babies into the sea. Being a part of these seasonal activities between July and December will give you a greater appreciation for the environment and help support this vital species.
