  • Great place if you like being close to nature. There are two options for swimming with las tortugas pay 5 soles at the port entrance and swim with the turtles in the dock, or at a cost of 8 soles per person will take you on a boat for a ride of the port and in the middle of the ocean you can swim with the turtles. We had the boat ride and its really nice!!

  • Swim with turtles is an expectacular, to interact with nature experience... You have a few 30-40minutes depending on the demand of people, they rent you vest for 2 Suns. Some make the boat ride and then swim with the turtles, but I think that sometimes there is more in the spring... Only when there is fishing and come to download, the turtles are more in boats, and there are few that come in the area for swimming, but there very nice experience. If tides you can go by boat, take or take a pill, because sometimes the smell when they unload fish produces dizziness and desire to throw... and more movement of the sea, one sometimes not enjoying the ride... But it is a wonderful experience, the locals are very friendly, and United. Hard-working, and honest. Nearby you can take photos in a few rocks, if that is enjoyed.

  • Turtles are present, many of different sizes, regularly fed squid head. The place is organized for visitors, very many, and parked in a small space delimited by buoys, all must be fitted with a lifejacket! A diving mask is to be expected, because there are many fish and the water is clear. Swim a bit further under his own responsibility is much more enjoyable and turtles approach, quiet. The place is close to Mancora. A visit to
