Festival of the Sea Turtle in Monterrico, Guatemala Nov 18-20

No Comments Events

Festival of the Sea turtle or Festival de la Tortuga is an incredible cause-driven event that takes place every year on the Pacific coast of Guatemala in Monterrico and nearby Hawaii. The turtle nesting season runs from July to December, so the Festival comes into swing just as the turtles hatch and are released into the Pacific ocean.

Festival events include workshops, activities for children, parades, a surfing competition and of course hatchling releases along with nightly patrols in search of nesting females. All proceeds support area turtle hatcheries.

If you aren’t in Guatemala right now, then it’s probably too late to attend…BUT make note to visit and participate in this awesome cause in 2012. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to give back to the world one sea turtle release at a time.
