Puerto ?ro, los Organos, Peru, Tortugas / Turtles

Puerto ?ro, a small fishing harbor in Los Organos district has carved itself out a reputation for the constant presence of hundreds of marine turtles, that feed off the remains of fish and by-catch. It does not seem like anybody is purposely feeding the turtles, but the villagers collaborate in totally protecting the turtles.

 

The Pier is a true and real fishing pier, where fishermen bring in their catch, clean and sort it and bring it to waiting truck that feed the fish lovers in the 20 million population of Lima or nearerby urban centers.

 

While fish is unavoidably a bit smelly, the catch comes straight from the boats and it is fun to watch the busy women and men going about their business, while nobody is bothered by the presence of tourists. In fact, tourism has become a main part of the income of the town, as visitors have to pay an entrance fee to get to the pier, while special facilities are operated by an experiences team to help visitors swim and snorkel with the turtles.

 

So this is a win-win situation:

  1. The tortugas / turtles at Puerto ?ro, los Organos, Peru get fed and are protected;

  2. the village and fishermen/women get extra income; and

  3. the tourist enjoy a wonderful, non-faked experience of a small fishing harbor while swimming with the turtles.
