Vive Mexico has been organizing this project regularly in
Rincon de Guayabitos, Nayarit since 2014. The main achievement of the
project is to protect the sea turtles with the help of volunteers who
will be cooperating with a team of biologists. Up to now, the project
has been quite successful and has reached extraordinary results.
Participating in sea turtle conservation is a great opportunity to
discover the rather charming life of sea turtles. If you are a social
person with group management skills, this camp can be for you! The camp
language is English but as being the leader you should have some
knowledge of Spanish.
The volunteer will be the project leader and will be the
responsible for the coordination of the activities that the group of
international volunteers will engage in. Each MTV includes two short
term projects that will be led by a volunteer except the last MTV18.13
which includes three short term projects to be led. Your tasks will be
1. The volunteer has to arrive to Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico on the
first day of the workcamp for a compulsory leader training course.
During the training all the tasks will be explained in detail (reception
of the volunteers, management of extra fee, recreational activities and
time management). The volunteer will be traveling to La Penita de
Jaltemba, NAyarit after staying for six days in Morelia. The travel
costs will be covered by Vive Mexico.

3. To organize activities with the local coordinator
4. To organize free time activities with the group
5. To submit reports of the activities planned to Vive Mexico
6. To take photographs during the workcamp
7. To encourage the volunteers to participate in the activities
The volunteers will be working at night from 20:00 to 08:00, four days
per week with an average of thirty hours. Depending the number of
turtles that come ashore, two teams might be formed among the
volunteers. In this way, each group will be taking turns, working one
night and taking the next night off for recovery. In addition, the
weekends are also spared for resting. Some of the activities to be

Rincon de Guayabitos, also known as
Guayabitos, is a beach located in the astonishing Sierra Madre
Occidental, in the state of Nayarit and bathed by the waters of the
Pacific Ocean. It is a popular tourist destination due to its proximity
to the cities of Tepic, Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta.
During their stay in Morelia City, leaders can take a walk in downtown
which has many cultural activities throughout the year, and discover the
variety of historic buildings and monuments, for those looking to
surround themselves by natural wonders, Morelia offers many options: 45
kilometers from Patzcuaro´s lake and the ancient pyramids of
Tzintzuntzan, the magical towns of Cuitzeo, Patzcuaro and Santa Clara
del Cobre, the islands of the Pancada, Janitzio among others that the
native cultures identified as the border between worlds, and several
ceremonial centers of the Mesoamerican pre-Hispanic times.
Once in Guayabitos, leaders enjoy various activities in one of the most
attractive destinations in Mexico. The area extends approximately 300
kilometers along the coast, integrated by mountainous jungle and facing
coastal islands. For those seeking a more rural and rustic side of
Mexico, the Riviera has a massive open space for everyone along the
Nayarit coast beaches, for those who want to relax, quiet beaches and
