Where Can I See Turtles in Puerto Vallarta?

Sea Turtle Season in Puerto Vallarta

Prepare for the annual seashore parade of your favourite shelled companions when you come to Puerto Vallarta for sea turtle season. Every year, from August to December, thousands of animal enthusiasts and curious travelers come to the shores of Puerto Vallarta to bear witness to and participate in the San Pancho turtle release.

Puerto Vallarta San Pancho Turtle Season

During this breath-taking event, you get to see nature at work as countless turtles make the trek from nest to sea to start their lives after hatching. Depending on how involved you want to get, you can even offer protection to the little ones you see making their great escape on San Pancho beach.

Some visitors choose to take a more active role in supporting the sustainability of our beautiful turtle population by protecting the baby turtles as they move towards the water. While we always welcome this type of tender, loving care from our Vallarta Adventures participants, we caution each and every guest to ensure they are acting in accordance with the best interests of the turtles. So, listen up to our guides and make unforgettable memories by contributing to the baby turtle release in San Pancho.
