  • We came in the specified opening hours in the evening and waited for over an hour until sunset. None... came up with about 20 other people waiting for us. At least we would have expected a note on the door.

  • What a great experience. Our time was running out and there was no posting about a release, so we just went and it turned out to be happening. It go released about 170! My 5 year old loved it!
  • This is the worst and least productive turtle release programs we have ever experienced. There was a turtle release program that was very professional which was shut down by someone. We would dig up the baby turtles, count them and the eggs and record. Most nest had 75 to 120 live turtles. This program in todos Santos has about 2 to 7 live turtles. Something wrong here?
  • While it was a thrill to release the baby tuetles, some were so exhausted from struggling in the bucket all day they didn't even try to crawl into the sea. Since there 's no way to measure the success of this program, it makes me wonder if it's worth it?
  • Releasing hatchling turtles into the ocean at sunset was a magical experience.
  • Turtle eggs afe gathered and incubated in a special safe pen to assure survival of species
