Releasing baby turtles into their natural environment is a highlight for guests staying at Now Jade Riviera Cancun this time of year. It is an amazing opportunity for guests of all ages to hold these precious turtles just before they are released. The turtle release program is part of our ongoing turtle conservation efforts.
Mother Caray Green Sea Turtles visit the beaches in the Riviera Maya to lay their eggs and as part of our environmental efforts we protect the nests until they hatch. We also educate our guests on safety precautions that should be taken during the fragile sea turtle nesting months, May through October.
Check out the photos below of the first guests of the season who released the turtles back into their natural habitat at Now Jade.
