Casa Dorada on the Forefront of Sea Turtle Conservation Efforts in Los Cabos.

Located in an idyllic destination of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and with a philosophy rooted in supporting the surrounding natural ecology, Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa is committed to the conservation of one of the world’s most beloved creatures, the sea turtle. As we observe World Turtle Day, Casa Dorada invites guests to participate in supporting its efforts to protect endangered turtles who arrive at the shores of Cabo San Lucas.

Having created the Casa Dorada Sanctuary Project back in 2008 and working together with other local entities, the resort has dedicated significant financial and human resources to ensuring that adequate measures are in place to safeguard nests, protect eggs and eventually successfully release baby turtles into the sea.

Every summer and fall, guests staying at Casa Dorada are fortunate to witness the arrival of female turtles on the beach right in front of the resort to lay their eggs. Then, 6 weeks later baby turtles are born making their way to the sea for the very first time, offering one of nature’s most touching spectacles. The most common turtle species encountered in Los Cabos is the olive ridley and even though the sea turtle nesting season in Los Cabos officially begins in May, we witness them year round with a particular increase during the period between August and November.

Casa Dorada and its turtle conservation efforts
To date, the Casa Dorada Sanctuary Project has protected more than 3,000 turtle nests and released more than 350,000 offspring into the sea. These efforts have helped in making the Cabo San Lucas Bay and Los Cabos a vitally important nesting area for the olive ridley.

Local involvement
In order to continue protecting turtles in the area, regional governments have created The Los Cabos Sea Turtle Conservation Program. In 2005 many of the community’s hotels, resorts, restaurants, and organizations have joined in, creating The Los Cabos Sea Turtle Protection Network. In 2008, Casa Dorada was officially added to this strategic coalition. Later, the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources granted the hotel federal permission to establish a working nursery for the safekeeping of olive ridley eggs, a privilege only a handful of institutions in the Southern Baja have enjoyed.
