The Isla Mujeres Turtle Farm is a hatchery for endangered sea turtles. The sea turtles come to Isla Mujeres beaches in the summer to lay their eggs and the volunteers at the Turtle Farm collect their eggs for their 60 day incubation period. If you’re lucky enough to be on Isla August through October, you can take part in turtle releases held all over the island where they release hundreds of baby turtles at a time. Just ask your concierge to keep you informed or watch the local paper for announcements. If you are passionate about nature’s miraculous cycle of life, you won’t want to miss this!
