We launched day-old turtles on their journey to the sea. Without that, the excursion would have been ordinary; with it, highly memorable.

We started with a long bus ride. The bus seats were very comfortable but the seats were too high and there were curtains at the edges of the windows, obstructing viewing. Our first stop was at a salt storage area in Cuyutlan and then the nearby Salt Museum. All the signage was in Spanish but our guide led us through the small museum explaining the displays. Then on to the turtle sanctuary where we watched a video of their work and then saw the iguanas, sea turtles and crocodiles they are rehabilitating. One large male sea turtle loved to have his back rubbed and those that wanted had a chance to hold a baby turtle hatched the night before. We then were taken to a hotel on the beach for a snack of three deep fried potato flautas and two guacamole tostadas along with a bottle of beer or soft drinks. We had an hour there to walk on the black sand beach and peruse the vendor tables. Read Less

We had a nice day.

We had a nice day. The guide was enthusiastic and the attraction was interesting enough. I think the port is going through some growing pains and it will likely get better and better.
