A must to do!

It was an amazing experience. A must to do, while you are in Puerto Escondido. Efraín was very nice and took his time to explain us the purpose and everything about the turtles 🐢.

Wonderful experience! Transportation was provided which made things seamless. Our group learned very interesting information about Turtles and they were happy to answer all of our questions. The turtle release was such a beautiful experience and they timed everything perfectly with the sunset which made for beautiful photos. Highly recommend!

Seeing these sea turtles was magical. They are adorable, and it's fun to see their first steps into this world. Our guide was incredibly nice, and did the research to find the best beach to do this. I highly recommend this unique experience.

We loved our time with the turtles! We learned so much about turtles and it felt great to help the tortuguitas into the sea.
Great experience!

The tour was wonderful! Although I had an only Spanish speaking guide (I was told ahead of time and still wanted to go). But the experience was amazing and can’t believe what these little turtles do!

Great experience. Kiki picked us up and took us to the reserve. His English is excellent. He explained what we were going to be doing and told us about the turtles and how the conservation was making a difference. We were able to release 2 different types of turtles. Highly recommend

Kiko was amazing. He picked us up and let us release a whole bunch of sea turtles. Him and his team were super informative and were very professional. He also took some extra pictures so we could capture the moment. 10/10 would do it again.

We were contacted and picked up on time. Kiko was very friendly. Releasing the sea turtles was awesome and we got to learn some about them. After the tour Kiko heard we hadn't visited carizalillo beach and since we were leaving the next day he took us there on the spot! So kind!

This is a must if you are in Puerto Escondido. Holding a tiny baby turtle basically in the palm of your hand and then watching it race out to the sea, I think speaks for itself. A very fun and unique experience. Staff could not have been more friendly.

What an amazing experience! We were picked up in a wonderful air conditioned van and on the way our guide Kiko told us a little about the area and the beaches. He was so friendly. When we arrived at the turtle camp on a gorgeous beach, we learned about the conservation work being done to protect and save sea turtles. We got to hold and admire our turtles in a coconut shell for a while before releasing them as the sun set. Watching these new lives set out on their journey is truly a profound experience that can only be experienced to understand. This was definitely a highlight of our trip. We enjoyed Kiko so much, we booked surfing with him a few days later which was also superb. I can't recommend Kiko and Eco Adventures enough! Do not miss this wonderful experience!
