What you can expect

Start your adventure by doing two activities that Mother Nature offers, the first of which is the activity of Liberation of turtles. You will have the opportunity to help nature and return the newborn turtles, and release them into the sea, taking as a sunset stage on the beach. We continue the tour visiting the most important places of hidden harbor, the viewpoints, Zicatela and the Adoquinado, making stops to take pictures and appreciate the view.

Later we arrived at the lagoon of Manialtepec living his second experience where we will board a boat that will take us inside to observe the wonderful phenomenon of the Bioluminescence. If you get closer, you can see with your lamp tiny fish that are part of this wonderful ecosystem.

Bioluminescence occurs thanks to a species of marine plankton that comes from the sea and reproduces in these calm waters. This spectacular phenomenon occurs in certain natural conditions because the lagoon naturally traps these tiny creatures that enter with the growing marine and stay trapped in it for quite some time until nature re-releases them by breaking down the natural barriers of sand.
