What is El Verde Camacho?
In the state of Sinaloa, there are many more things than beautiful beaches and exotic landscapes combining desert and sea. It is also a place where you try to preserve the exotic fauna, much of it being in danger of extinction. And one of these places dedicated to this noble task is the El Camacho Green Sanctuary, a nature refuge.
In El Verde Camacho it focuses on the main activity to help a particular amphibian: the sea turtle. This conservation and reproduction center of this animal originated in 1998, being declared a protected natural area. And the interesting thing about this site is that it is a collaborative effort among the inhabitants of the place with marine biologists.
When visiting the Tortuguera beach El Vere Camacho, they will start your tour giving you a talk about the tasks performed on this site. Then you will be mentioned the characteristics of the sea turtle that is protected here, working with two species in particular. The first is the golf turtle and the second is the mangrove turtle, taking care of both with great enthusiasm.
