Refugee for reptiles

The Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar Golf and Spa Resort and the Westin Resort and Spa, both in Los Cabos, participate in a sea turtle conservation program and offer packages that enable guests to take part, as well. In 2010, both resorts saw the release of more than 4,000 Olive Ridley sea turtles on their beaches. Guests learned about the nesting process and protection of the turtles throughout the incubation and hatching season, which runs through November. “Every year, the resort community in Los Cabos, comes together to protect the sea turtles, which is vital for the species’ survival,” said Renato Mendonca, general manager of the Sheraton. Several specially trained employees at both resorts assist in the monitoring and release of the turtles.
