Turtle Release Season in Puerto Vallarta: An Adventure for the Whole Family
Thousands of saved baby turtles released into the ocean in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. (BetterLivingGuide)
The sea turtle release season in Puerto Vallarta is about to start. Like every year, in July, visitors will be able to take part in an activity that is accomplished thanks to the protection and care provided by authorities and certain hotels.
Come and enjoy a beautiful sunset along with the incomparable experience of contributing in preserving an endangered species.
Unlike other tourist beach destinations in the country, in Puerto Vallarta the turtle release is celebrated at sunset, while the most common practice is to release them during the night. This is actually due to the high light pollution, which means that there is an excess of light during the night. Too much light causes disorientation in the baby turtles and prevents them from reaching the bay and open waters, where they are in less danger.
Before the turtle release, participants receive a briefing where experts explain the importance of the protection of sea turtles, why we do it, and how we do it. They explain what will happen to the turtles once they are released, all the way till they reach adulthood and come back to breed.
Imagine the look on your children, the smile on their face, the pride reflected in your wife’s features, your husband’s satisfaction… In short, the world of emotions that these small creatures can provide for us while we are with our most loved ones. Come and experience it! Come with us to release these fabulous beings back into nature!
The turtle release experience is a true opportunity of a lifetime that adds to the friendliness, the culinary variety, the natural riches, and the beautiful traditions of Puerto Vallarta. An incomparable event that will no doubt remain in your family’s memories forever!
