Botanical Gardens & Sea Turtles

You can also join Experience Mex-ECO Tours to enjoy some highlights closer to home! This day trip takes you from Melaque/Barra de Navidad to the Cuyutlán sea turtle sanctuary and salt museum, followed by a guided tour of the very special Ola Brisa Gardens, Manzanillo’s premiere botanical experience!

After an 8.00am departure from Melaque we enjoy the best botanical experience in our area! Patty and Tommy have created a tropical paradise with species from all over the world in their beautiful space overlooking the bay of Manzanillo!

From Manzanillo we head down the coast where after a short visit to the small local salt museum in Cuyutlán we stop for lunch at a beach side restaurant on the beautiful black sand beach. After lunch we head 5 minutes out of town to visit the Cuyutlán sea turtle sanctuary where we learn about their conservation and research programs with sea turtles and other local species, including several captive animals at different developmental stages. From there we take a leisurely boat trip through the mangroves for wildlife observation before heading back to the sanctuary and returning to Melaque.
