This is a view of the front of El Rinconcito, a little hotel on the beach at Mayto. That’s Fernando in the foreground, holding up his granddaughter Delisa to get a better view of the mythical Tortuga of Guadalupe rising up behind it. I did this sketch in 2009 or 2010.
Sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach at Mayto, but many eggs are taken by humans and animals for food. There is a Turtle Camp at Mayto Beach where eggs are protected and the baby turtles are released into the ocean.
