Turtle National Museum

Created in 1991, considered the second most important in all of Latin America, with the aim of protecting sea turtles and save them from extinction and raise awareness among visitors about the importance of balance between man and nature.
At the center you can see all the species inhabiting the Mexican coasts, six freshwater species and two terrestrial ones. Of the eleven species of sea turtles that inhabit the planet, ten of them arrive on Mexican beaches and nine of them will lay their eggs.
From March to November, the secluded beaches of this stretch of coast are teeming with life forms and contribute to the spread of the species.
In 1997, for example, the Museum recorded the arrival of 900,000 turtles on the beach of "The Escobilla" considered a sanctuary for several species of sea turtles.
