The turtles are now nesting on our beach and will continue through September/October. We have seen turtles nesting into November. The first hatchlings will be seen about the 1st of July.
April-June are the best fishing months for Marlin, Sailfish and Dorado.
May-September- Centro Ecologico Akumal(CEA) sponsers evening turtle walks where the participants may see nesting turtles and hatching turtle nests. Highly recommended. Check their website out for more information www.ceakumal.org.
May 15th is the start of the whale shark excursions. Whale Sharks are the largest fish in our oceans(up to 40 feet long) and migrate off the coast of the Yucatan Penisula May through August. They feed on the plankton rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Manta Rays(up to 25 feet across)are also in the area. Guided boat and snorkel trips leave from Cancun and Isla Holbox check with our office staff to make reservations. Highly recommended, a once in a lifetime experience!
