Puerto Vallarta Will Welcome 3,000 Turtle Nests this Season

During August, the arrival of sea turtles to the Puerto Vallarta coast begins, with the expectation of 3,000 turtle nests being welcomed this year.

Helios Hernández, deputy director of Environment of the municipal government, said that once August arrives, the presence of turtles spawning on the coast is more constant, to the extent that up to 70 or 80 nests can be registered in one night.

The number of turtle arrivals fluctuates year to year, and their presence on the coast is of the utmost importance, and it demands care and constant work from civil society, organizations, and government.

Hernández said that on average, 100 eggs are collected for each nest, of which around 85 percent, hatch (the turtles are born).

The spawning season began in June and ends in December (sometimes lasting until January), but the bulk of turtles spawning is recorded between August and September.

If you find a turtle spawning, call 911 so trained personnel can help it.

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”
