    The turtles were very cute as they ran into the water. We were given a basic overview of the process and hatching and then we were given our own little turtle to name and release.

    My baby turtle has handed to me in a coconut shell... hemade it to the ocean safe and sound. Great experience, everyone was cheering on the turtles and hoping for a big wave to sweep the turtle into the ocean. The Vivemar Staff were great, enjoyed the short talk about this program. We took a a taxi to/from the beach, no organized tours for me -

    Es muy bonita la experiencia, sumamente recomendable. Solo consideren el clima, ya que se puede reagendar en caso de lluvia

    Am amazing opportunity to support conservation efforts on behalf of endangered turtle species on Oaxacan coast. Our tour guide partners with my locals to provide excellent education. Fun getting to release newly hatched turtles back into the sea.

    Juan Carlos our guide & driver was fantastic and very professional! The van was great, he offered mezcal on the way, spoke English fluently, very attentive the whole way and very fun! Our absolute favorite guide we had so far in Mexico! The turtles were extremely cute and the money are going to a great cause! Do not think about it twice, just book!

    All I have to say is Luis. Luis our guide, was the highlight of this experience simply because he made it so enjoyable and funny! He was so knowledgeable and professional. We went on to book two more experiences with him and they were both equally amazing!!!

    We took the taxi from La Punta to Bacocho beach for $150 pesos, stood in line for the briefing, paid $100 pesos per turtle and then waited to get our lil turtle. This was the most amazing experience to know that we're hopefully contributing to the survival of this lil creature. Truly once in a lifetime experience and highly recommended to all!!
