One of Mexico's most eco-friendly beach destinations, Puerto Vallarta supports the local environment with its local sea turtle protection program. The turtle release season begins in July and ends in December with the arrival of the sea turtles to the beaches of Vallarta Nayarit to incubate their eggs. Once they hatch, the baby turtles are helped by locals and tourists to reach the ocean and protect them from predators. Velas Vallarta supports the sea turtle conservation program and encourages guests to be part of this amazing wildlife experience.
