Giving back to Mother Nature at the Platanitos Turtle Camp is one of the most popular and rewarding activities here at Playa Las Tortugas. A memorable experience for kids and adults alike, consider signing on to volunteer during the peak (late summer) months of turtle nesting season when our conservationists can use all the help they can get. Wander the moonlit beach at night in search of the elusive mother Ridleys as they quietly dig their nests and deposit their soon-to-be baby hatchlings.
Volunteers and researchers work side-by-side harvesting the recently laid eggs, offering shelter and protection to the incubating turtles before they are released back into the tropical waters they call home. Catching a glimpse of this timeless ritual of Mother Nature is a reward in and of itself, not to mention the fact that your stay at our villas is likely to be discounted as our thanks for your hard work.
