It’s a shame your not allowed to hold the turtles . Just watch them being released . It was nice to see and the pictures are lovely and it’s a walk down the beach . After going to the zoo nothing could come close

the hotel we were staying at checked up daily with the turtle release by phone to see if they had any turtles to release. we stayed at the riu vallarta but I expect any hotel can phone up and check.
