Red Travel Mexico was not named after the color but after the Spanish word for a fisherman's net. The company, which is a hybrid of tour company and non-profit eco-resource and which has gotten high marks for its community based work, operates a sea turtle conservation project in Baja's Magdalena Bay. Travelers get to trek out to remote beach areas and work with local eco experts finding, tagging, and studying the turtles. Sleep is under the stars or in pitched tents while toilets are eco-friendly. Trips include meals, along with a celebratory margarita after a long day of sea turtle work, and travelers get to meet local wildlife experts and, of course, the sea turtles themselves.
