Tortugueros Las Playitas
Todos Santos is a very giving
town, the residents (and many visitors) are very receptive to the
needs of the less fortunate and the poor animals that need help.
If you plan on visiting Todos Santos and feel that it might be nice
to help, contact one of the charitable organizations below to see if
there is any way you can be of help. A nice gesture would be
to contact them well before your trip, if possible, as there might
be a special need (medicine, a textbook that cannot be obtained
locally or a piece of badly needed equipment) that you could bring
with you. Maybe you have the ability to schedule some time as
a volunteer during your vacation (sometimes even a few hours can
help). If you can not volunteer, donations of money are always
