Sea turtles belong to the family of reptiles, such as crocodiles, snakes and iguanas. Although they are almost always under water, you can see this beautiful species approaching the beach on full moons as they nest and lay their eggs. Scientists have said that their characteristic shell, also known as a carapace, is part of the defense they have against predators and environment. Take your time to enjoy and learn more about these animals while staying in México. The town of Troncones has established a Sea Turtle Sanctuary to protect newly laid eggs until they are hatched. Stop by Roberto's Bistro and help release baby sea turtles to the ocean.
The nearby city of Zihuatanejo offers a wonderful mixture of Mexican culture, shopping, sightseeing, and dining.
