A Magical Journey
The preservation of ocean and marine life is a priority to Costa Palmas. With that in mind, from August to October, Costa Palmas, along with the local government, unite to protect the vulnerable Olive Ridley sea turtles that nest throughout the stunning Baja Mexico coastline.
The Costa Palmas team, along with the local government, patrol approximately 30km of East Cape coastline allowing the sea turtles to grow and journey to the sea in a protected environment. Each year more than 300 turtle nests are relocated and planted safely in safe areas within the Costa Palmas property where they are protected and tracked.
The Olive Ridley turtles, also called the Pacific Ridley, incubate in their eggs for approximately two months and then slowly hatch and claw their way out of the nest and instinctively head toward the sea.
