Join us for a great adventure in the wilds of Mazatlan, this tour will take you for a visit El Verde Camacho Sea Turtle Sanctuary, an important nesting site for the Olive Ridley´s sea turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea).  This natural protected area comprises extensive wetlands and El Verde Estuary, an important coastal ecosystem surrounded by mangrove forests, home to an outstanding biodiversity including a myriad of coastal birds, fish, shrimp, an even a small population of american crocodiles.
