Turtle Season
Nesting season is here!

For thousands of years, every year in the Caribbean Sea, this wonderful spectacle that nature offers us has occurred.

Quintana Roo is one of the few destinations where 7 of the 8 species of turtles that exist in the world arrive. Cancun is considered the second largest sea turtle nesting area in the state and is also the one that receives the largest number of species. , despite the intense tourist activity, that is why the sea turtle is of utmost importance for Cancún.

Starting in the month of May on our beaches you can see the corrals whose purpose is to protect the nests! According to (SEMARNAT), there are around 7 species of sea turtles that reach the warm waters of Cancun, the most frequently sighted specimens are the white turtles, loggerhead turtles, hawksbill turtles and leatherback turtles. It is believed that their arrival in the Caribbean Sea is due to the conditions of the beaches and sand, which provide a good place to rest, feed and nest.


Turtles generally arrive at the shore of beaches at night, when there are fewer predators. Once they have found the ideal place in the sand, they begin to dig nests where they lay their eggs. Once the process is complete, they bury them. , the nest is moved by trained personnel to the pens that are monitored and protected areas 24 hours a day. The time it takes for the turtle to nest and return to the sea is approximately 1 to 1:30 hours. The number of eggs varies between 100 and 120 and they are generally 4 centimeters in diameter. The young leave the nest after 50 to 58 days.

On the beach we have a turtle pen and in the months of July to November we have the pleasure of witnessing the birth and release period of turtles.

FUN FACT: At SEASHORE APARTAMENTOS CANCUN during the pandemic, as we did not have aquatic activity on the beach we had the opportunity to contemplate during the month of April and May the mating of turtles (NEVER SEEN BEFORE on the beaches of Cancun) on our coast we arrived to count more than 23 mating specimens.

Come and contemplate this other gift of nature. We will wait for you !
