From August to mid of January, Olive Ridley and Black Turtles come to shore to lay thousands of eggs in the sand before returning to sea. About 45 days later, baby turtles hatch but not all reach adulthood. Our mission is to protect the nests, take care of the eggs, and research their reproduction habits. You will be able to participate in this effort to raise the sea turtles’ survival rate as much as possible. Guided by a marine biologist, you will have fun in this educational learning experience releasing baby turtles back into nature. The adventure is not over until you have enjoyed an authentic Mexican meal at Rancho Carisuva.

What to expect

We will pick you up at your hotel lobby on the day of your activity. Upon arriving at the park, you can get comfortable and ready for your activity. Although we have lockers available, we strongly suggest only bringing the essentials to the park. Before your tour, you will receive a brief introduction to the park and our conservation projects; you may even participate in them! 

To start, we’ll do a quick safety check and get acquainted with the best way to handle these delicate animals. We’ll head to the beach, where you can participate in this life-changing experience. The biologists will guide you step by step while releasing the baby turtles into the ocean.

Back at the ranch, you will have free time to get some refreshments, watch your adventure photos, and get to know the ranch. Take your time to explore the Baja California-style desert hut, our goats, horses, and our famous friendly Mexican donkeys!

Baby turtles ❤️
Finally got to do a bucket list experience and did the sunset turtle release, we were very lucky and were only the 2 of us so we got to spend lots of time with the babies watching to make sure they all made it to the ocean, guides were so friendly and informative would definitely recommend this experience ❤️🐢
