Why is the pool turtle-shaped?

Representing the “Aquarium of the World” that sits off the shores of the resort, the pool at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is shaped like a sea turtle. In many cultures, sea turtles are symbolic of longevity and the perseverance and protection required to live a long, healthy life.
