On Wednesday Hacienda Tres Rios was invited to witness a turtle release at Xcaret. The park is dedicated to preserving the flora and fauna of the Riviera Maya. For this particular program green or white sea turtles are raised in the park until they are 15 months old and then they are then released into the Caribbean Sea, their natural habitat. Visitors and local school children can witness and even participate in this heartwarming process.
