The Turtle Release takes place from August through December. Tour operator Baja Outback takes kids and families to nesting areas around the bay of San Jose del Cabo, where turtles lay their eggs.

There are leatherback and loggerhead turtles, among other varieties. Kids get to see the nest and the eggs and learn all about these fascinating shelled creatures.

Every 45 days, the eggs hatch and children have the opportunity to help take the turtles out of the eggs and release them. The municipal government allows kids to adopt and name turtles, and even provides certificates. This is one eco-adventure the kids will love.

Age group: age 4-12
