About the Turtles

  • They are in danger
    Unfortunately, all 7 species of Sea Turtles are endangered. This is due to illegal poaching and pollution. In Mexico, turtles are protected since 1990. Fishing, hunting, or poaching turtles is now a Federal offense.
  • Most species visit Mexico
    Out of the 7 species of Sea Turtles that remain, 6 of them nest in Mexico.
  • They are thousands of miles
    Whether it is for migrational reasons, for mating, or feeding, Sea Turtles can travel hundreds or thousands of kilometers before reaching their destination.
  • The temperature of the nest defines the gender of the Turtles
    Warmer temperatures produce mostly females, while lower temperatures produce mostly males. A tempered climate usually yields a similar amount of males and females.
  • Baby turtles use the moon as guidance
    Sea Turtles are photo-tactical, which means they are attracted by the light. They use the brightest light as guidance, which is usually the reflection of the moon on the water. They avoid the shade, including the vegetation at the top of the dunes, where danger may lurk.

About the Cenotes

  • The Yucatan Peninsula is an ancient coral reef
    During the last ice age, the Yucatan Peninsula was a huge coral reef covered by water. When the sea levels lowered, the dry air formed our limestone soil (the Yucatan Penbinsula).
  • How were the Cenotes formed?
    Limestone is very porous, allowing water particles to flow through it, forming underground rivers. As the water erosions the underwater caves, their roofs collapse giving birth to cenotes.
  • Cenotes: Access to the Mayan Underworld
    The Mayans believed that Cenotes were sacred doors to the Underworld, where several of their deities lived. In Mayan Mythology, the center of the Earth is a place filled with life, from where plants, trees and water come.
  • Mayan Mythology
    To the Mayan, the depths of the Earth were full of life. Trees, plants and water came from there. In the western muind, the depths are associated with evil and punishment, but to the Mayan, it was the origin of all life.
  • Crystal-clear Water
    Because cenotes are filled with rainwater that was filtered by the limestone, cenote water is one of the clearest in the world, with over 150 feet of underwater visibility.
  • Cenotes are part of the longest underground river system in the world
    A group of divers recently discovered the connection between both underground river systems in the Riviera Maya area, so adding up to a whopping total 153.6 Km, the Sac Actún System (white cave in Mayan) became the longest in the World as far as we know. Eleven cenotes serve as entrances to this system.
  • There are over 7 thousand Cenotes in the peninsula
    Each of them is uniquely decorated by Nature
