I thought it doesen't start until at least July ?
this is quote from a new review in March.
Turtles Release Program: On one of our long walks along the beach we came across a baby turtle making it's way to the water. Then we found out that 5 minutes from our hotel is a place that releases baby turtles every Thur, Fri and Sat at 6:30 pm. When you leave the resort turn left on the beach, behind the hatchery they are building a new resort or condo, we actually thought that the turtle hatchery place was a sales office for the place underconstuction until we got closer. The cost for this was $5.00 US for the two of us. Bring your camera, but no flash can be used at all. Amazing pictures of the sunset and your watching these turtles try and find the way to the water, so go sideways or backwards but some just go straight to the water. Just watch out that on the first night we did this some birds came and got some of the turtles that had made it to the water, so poor child was crying. The 2nd night we went everything went ok. But it was amazing watching about 40 turtles that are only about 4 or 5 hours old try and make it way to the water.
