  • Never imagine that out possible power nothing with turtles in their natural habitat and that they were so accustomed to human kelpie. It was super nice. They are beautiful. What I reproach, is that on the shores of port and very close to the turtles sea were upholstered garbage, saw as sturistas had little respect and threw their trash so nadama wherever except in trash bins, water sold soft drinks and everything but there should be more waste control, primarily because it is a place where educates and helps preserving this beautiful species and sea.

  • In Mancora I took the tour to go to El Ñuro to swim with sea turtles. You go to look for the hotel as at 8 in the morning and take you in a van up to the spring of the Nuro... Apart will have to pay the entrance to the pier and the boat that takes you to the turtles. While we waited on the dock that came our boat, we could see as they operated fish that had fresh fish. I I dared not throw me to swim with the turtles, but anyway, it was amazing to see them swimming alongside the boat and in the midst of people who if released to water. Whether you swim with the turtles or that you only see them from the boat, is an experience that you can't miss!

  • From Mancora, Vichayito or organs, is easy to reach this place, with a Tour, taxi or mototaxi inclusive, the cost of entry to the pier is 5 soles (think children under 10 and over 60 I think also, don't pay) to be with turtles pay 10 ns. by a ride in boat (where enter more than 15 people) you dan vest life, runs the coastal ones 20 minutes and returns to the dock anchoring close, of there all to the water to swim, and them turtles arrive in great amount, thanks to the food that them guides them offer, this part also hard ones 20 minutes, of there the landing; Alternatively, you can pay 5 ns. and from the pier fall into the sea, equal to be swimming with the turtles; a very good and highly recommended experience.
