What you'll do

At the beginning of our experience I will collect you at your residence. Our first stop will be the turtle camp where you will listen and learn everything we know about sea turtles, and also about our project, which is to return these little creature to the immense sea which is their home. This is an interactive experience where the visitor takes part in releasing the turtles safely back into the wild.

After we have finished we will arrive at an Afro-Mexican community where we will get a boat to the lagoon Manialtepec, where the bioluminescence is present. Here you will have the opportunity to feel the indescribable sensation of bathing in that liquid, like seeing stars leak into the water, shining and dispersing in a blue haze-a perfect place to clear the mind and recharge your batteries. This phenomenon can only be seen in two lagoons in Mexico and Manialtepec is one of them. At the end of the experience we will bring you safely back to your accommodation.

JOB
I am a pioneer of this adventure; I was born and grew up here. Later I studied to be a tourist guide, I am the founder of the Manglar tourist cooperative, working with native people who live in the area where the tour takes place. We live here and many of us are fishermen, who know every corner of our home. Since I was a child, I bathed in the waters of the Manialtepec lagoon and its bioluminescence.
To own my boat I had to train to be a captain, in our work here we collaborate in the protection of the lagoon with the Ocean University of Puerto Ángel. I will do my upmost to provide you with memories that will stay with you for the rest of your life. I look forward to hosting you on this unforgettable Airbnb experience!

Beautiful experience! There are other places were you can liberate turtles, but this one was very special and personalized cause they take you to an no so common beach. I also recomend to visit the lagoon on a day without full moon to appreciate better the phenomenon. Definetly worth it

This was a once in a lifetime experience! Releasing baby turtles into the ocean was one of the greatest feelings and I will never forget it! And the bioluminescence was so cool to see as well!
