Watch as baby sea turtles hatch and take their first steps towards the ocean during this half-day, guided experience that lets you guide a sea turtle from nest to the sea. Help take a hatched turtle from the nest and wait while they open their eyes. Next, carry a turtle in a water-filled container to the sand and watch as they instinctively make their way at sunset to the ocean.

Great historical location. We had a great tour guide. The site itself is still under development, so if you have been to Chichen Itza, Tulum, or Koba, this sight will feel underwhelming, however, the history of this location is fascinating. It good to visit.
