From July to December, turtle camps and various hotels release hundreds of baby sea turtles, marking the begining of turtle nesting season in Puerto Vallarta.

Like every year, the sea turtle nesting season has begun on the Mexican Pacific coast. As these are endangered species -such as olive ridley, hawksbill and leatherback turtles- Puerto Vallarta has conservation programs for these legendary reptiles.

Some hotels in the bay, such as Marriott and Hyatt, have their own turtle camps where the nests are protected until the eggs hatch. Once it happens, they offer their guests the experience of accompanying the newborn hatchlings to the seashore to begin their adventure in the vast ocean.

Turtle releases are free, open to the general public, and are carried on in the hours before sunset during the summer and fall.
