Honeymooning in Guatemala: Parlamas

Olive Ridley sea turtles are among the many extinction endangered species here in Guatemala. Some minor efforts are under way to save them from extinction. These hatcheries are common on the southern beaches of Guatemala and I found this single one -I did walk ALL the beach; about 6 miles- where I was not expecting any. Usually, a group of volunteers comes to the beaches at night and finds the turtles nests, they gather the eggs and they have them incubate inside these protected hatcheries.
