We invite you to the release of turtles on the beach of the Hotel Playa Mazatlán, this September 15th at 7:00 p.m. Share this awesome experience with your friends and family !
The golfina turtle, a protected species, comes to deposit their eggs 3 to 5 times a year on our beach. The Aquarium colects as many as 100 eggs from each nest. They hatch in about 40 days, once hatched, the Aquarium brings them back to be released. The turtles reach adulthood and will return to spawn at the same place they were released. Hotel Playa Mazatlan has proudly contributed to the rescue of these turtles for the last 19 years.
Nesting season is from june to november.
On july 21rst, August 23rd and Septeber 3rd, 2010, three turtles came to nest on our beach depositing 339 eggs, these are expected to be ready for release by mid-september.
