A unique opportunity to release baby turtles into the ocean combined with a panoramic tour of Acapulco.
Travel along the Main Avenue Costera, passing by the many hotels, restaurants, and shopping districts en route to the Scenic Highway. There will be a short stop for pictures at a panoramic vantage point.
Continue through to Las Brisas residential area to the Diamond Zone, passing by Puerto Marques Bay and the Black Lagoon where the first Tarzan movie was filmed. Next, you will be taken along the Costera Palmas and pass by the Acapulco Princess Hotel which resembles an Aztec pyramid and the Mayan Palace Hotel, probably one of the most beautiful properties in Acapulco.
At the peaceful Elcano Diamante beach club, baby turtles are awaiting to be released. Marine turtles are an endangered species. It has been estimated that for every 1,000 born, only one will reach the adult stage. Get ready and release your turtle into the ocean; liberate the rest of the nest and watch as they start their new life in the wild. You will be helping the conservation of the sea turtles. A true once in a lifetime experience. Afterwards, enjoy some some free time, with the opportunity to take a refreshing swim in the Beach Club pool, before the return drive to the port.
During your tour light refreshments will be offered.
Note: This tour involves limited walking, however guests must be able to negotiate steps on to and off the coach. The number of turtles that are ready for release may not always match the number of participants. Delays due to traffic may occur, and free time may vary. Please remember swimwear and sun protection. Towels are included. Before you book this excursion you must refer to the ‘Beach / Water Related’ paragraph under the Guide to Symbols in this brochure.
