Hot Tips: Crawling to a Hotel Near You

You've gone on a dino dig. You've watched the whales. The next creatures to zero in on: sea turtles! With scientists calling attention to their plight—all seven species are threatened or endangered—it seems every beach resort is rolling out a turtle program for guests. At Four Seasons Resort Nevis (www.fourseasons.com), kids can "adopt" a satellite-tracked animal to trace on-line back home. Guests at Antigua's Jumby Bay (www.rosewoodhotels.com) take nighttime walks to watch hawksbills lay their eggs. And at Costa Azul Adventure Resort (www.costaazul.com), near Puerto Vallarta in San Francisco, Mexico, families help shepherd baby olive ridleys or leatherbacks into the water. Sadly, only one in a thousand hatchlings makes it to adulthood. The best resort programs are affiliated with conservation groups, ensuring that the turtles have the best chance at survival they can get. —JANE MARGOLIES
