It is an experience that you should not miss on the gorgeous Beaches of the Eastern Shore of Cozumel.

There is nothing more exciting than watching little turtles struggle to reach the sea, but the locals and tourists may help them and becomes easier and safer for the lovely creatures.

The species that come to the coast to nest are Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta Caretta), and the Green Turtle (Chelonia Mydas).

On the beaches of Cozumel each year, from May to November, an average of 2,000 nests are detected and more than 150,000 hatchlings are released.

It takes the newly hatched turtles as much as three days to climb to the surface and head for the ocean. Instinctively, the newborns wait until they sense less light and cooler temperatures, which tell them it is dusk, and then safer to start their way to the sea.

Usually around five in the afternoon the visitors are invited to join and support this important conservation program to save and protect these endangered species of turtles.

There is a turtle camp located in Punta Sur, which also carries out work to monitor, conserve and protect sea turtles.
