  • This place is to help a conservation of sea turtles. They range from the incubation of the eggs in the sand until the release at sea when they have reached the age of 1 1/2an. There are different pools with turtles of different ages that one can gently take pictures with us. I was at the Pelicano and the beach team offered a 3hrs output that included this place among others for 10 pesos. Very happy with my trip of late afternoon 15:00@18:00!
