Baby turtle highlight
Veronica_L, Apr 2023
Baby Turtle release into ocean was such a highlight and wonderful activity to increase their survival rates!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Hola Veronica, Thank you for sharing your thoughts. While releasing baby turtles into the ocean is a beautiful and meaningful activity, it's important to remember that their survival rate is unfortunately very low. Only around 3% of baby turtles actually make it to adulthood. This is due to a variety of factors such as predation, pollution, and habitat loss. It's crucial that we continue to raise awareness about the challenges that sea turtles face and work towards protecting their habitats to ensure their survival in the future. Best regards.
Amazing tour with a wonderful guide
Anonymous, Feb 2023
We really enjoyed our tour. Very informative and interesting, not rusted and exactly what was said and more! The mangroves were beautiful and relaxing and we saw lots of wildlife and the turtles release was amazing. Rogelio was a safe driver and very nice to chat with. He took us to a mezcal tasting place at the end which was very cool! Thank you and highly recommend 😊

Hi Thank you for your excellent comment. We hope to see you again in family to enjoy an other excursion with us. Thank you.
Amazing outing in Lagoon and with Turtles
Alain_V, Sept 2022
Our driver/guide, Roger did a great job of safely and informatively getting us to the sanctuary and keeping us engaged but giving us space for a roadside bite and conversation. Clearly, I didn't read but part of this eco-mini-adventure was a lagoon tour for the "crocodillos" so super cool. David, our guide for the lagoon portion showed his passion for mangrove reforestation and ecology, amazing individual. Oh and the turtle part? hard not to get emotional about it when you see what this community is doing.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hi Alain, Your comment makes us happy see a person who loves and enjoy the nature. We hope to see you and family again with us in this incredible Huatulco, who knew how to preserve it environment. Best regards
