“OMFG BABY SEA TURTLES!!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

If you are in Todos Santos and want to watch baby sea turtles being released into the wild, this is the place. The operation is a little shoestring and hard to find but head to Las Tunas and there is some signage to guide you there. The turtles control the schedule so it depends on what has hatched that day. Releases are at sunset.

“Terrific!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

What a wonderful opportunity to help baby turtles successfully make the first step to their life in the ocean. You can volunteer to help with the hatching and can also watch the babies make their way down the sand to the surf. Wonderful for kids! Bring some $$ to donate to the cause!

“Fun for all ages”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

A fantastic project. It is a fun way to enjoy an evening by the ocean while learning about how important our help has become to the survival of these special animals. It was made all the better by a wonderful sunset at the end of it all.

Thank you for your review but the man in this photo does not work for TOrtugueros Las Playitas. He works for Grupo Tortuguero. You'll know you're at Tortugueros Las Playitas if you see the Incubation Greenhouse (like a greenhouse for plants, arch shaped and covered with plastic).
