Nature Encounter and Sea Turtle Camp

A conservation Adventure with the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle on Puerto Vallarta coast.

The area of Banderas Bay boasts incredible biodiversity, due to variations in ecosystems and habitats. Our adventure provides the opportunity to support the ongoing work of a dedicated team of Mexican biologists in two different conservation projects. First we set off for an Urban Estuary called El Salado, where you will be able to observe mangrove and birds, also the ever-elusive American Crocodile hatchling in the nursery, then we continue to see a sea turtle conservation video; afterward we relocate to a beach to release Olive Ridley Turtle hatchlings.
