    As a Sea Turtle Volunteer you have the opportunity to choose your daily or nightly activities.  You can patrol the beach at night on ATV's searching for, and relocating turtle nests.  You may wish to spend your days guarding the Turtle Sanctuary, checking for hatchlings, and documenting temperature data. Or you may prefer to stay indoors and work on recording nesting data, or designing flyers and beach signs. 
    There are group activities like camping on the beach, managing hatchling releases, riverbed and beach clean-ups, and Cultural Festival presentations.  You will have the opportunity to practice Spanish and/or English with our bilingual staff, and enjoy tradicional Mexican cuisine, at mealtime with your hosts and other Volunteers. 
    There will also be free time to explore local beaches, swim with Whale Sharks, take a yoga class, snorkel, visit art galleries, read and relax!
