One of our favorite times of the year is here – turtle nesting season on the Riviera Maya! Every summer, Loggerhead and Green Sea Turtle moms swim up to the beautiful beaches of Tulum, dig a nest with their flippers, lay their eggs, bury them in the sand and then return to the Caribbean Sea. It truly is a magnificent site!!

Roughly two months from now, the adorable baby turtles will hatch and begin their journey to the sea.

These primitive vertebrates are endangered so we strongly encourage caution if you happen to encounter a mother sea turtle on the beach. For a list of tips on how to safely witness this age-old phenomenon, please visit My Tulum Travel.
