Sea Turtle Spawning Season in Tulum and Akumal
Six out of seven of the world's sea turtle species return to the Riviera Maya every year to build their nests, lay their eggs, and give another generation of offspring a chance to thrive. Taking place between May and September, sea turtle spawning season is a unique opportunity to see this amazing process.
Help Sea Turtles Reach the Ocean
A sea turtle lays 50-200 eggs in its nest, but only 1% of the hatchlings will ever make it to the ocean. Mexico takes its approach to sea turtle protection seriously, and you can help by never disturbing a nesting sea turtle or any hatchlings you see. Do not touch them or even get close enough to touch them, and don't use for flash for pictures. If you see a new nest, let the hotel staff know right away.
