Just two hours driving to the south of Puerto Vallarta is Mayto Beach, a place of almost 7 miles of virgin sand where, in addition to resting and enjoying unparalleled views, you can learn about marine life, as it is home to the Sea Turtle Protection Camp, which is responsible for the care of this beautiful specimen.

This camp, directed by the biologist Israel Llamas, aims to spread environmental education and conservation through its reception and stay program, where student groups, social service students and national and foreign volunteers participate in the work of protecting and caring for the local flora and fauna, its main purpose being the preservation of the nesting habitat of the different species of sea turtles that arrive in at Mayto Beach.

This weekend, the Mayto Turtle Camp (as it is also known) commemorated its 17th anniversary of hard work for the conservation of sea turtles that nest in the region.

In a statement issued through their social networks, they mentioned that “today, they have added different programs focused on caring for the environment and have increased their impact on the protection of nature.”

Examples of this are the Center for Environmental Education (CEAM) with its different reforestation, protection of native bees and plastic recycling subprojects; the Research Project with the Hawksbill Turtle and the Reception of School Groups.

In addition, its summer and winter volunteer programs open the doors so that young people from all over the country, and even from other countries, can join its activities.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is the number one magazine of its type in Vallarta · Nayarit. We were the first ones to advertise, because we saw it as an ideal platform to show our properties. The result? For a long time it has generated an extraordinary quantity of clients. Now in addition to that, it contributes to the positioning of our brand.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
