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.

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue.”
