Turtles come to lay their eggs at Xixim

The nights of May become mystical when, visiting the beach, you encounter a hawksbill turtle laying eggs on the white seashore of our protected area, working hard all night only to leave a legacy of life. Each turtle lays about 260 eggs and survival is likely to be only for 3 or 4 turtles.
It is explicitly proved that our hotel causes a minimal impact on the ecosystem that it houses and protects, because hawksbill turtles, amongst other wildlife, visit our area on a regular basis as they have for hundreds or perhaps thousands of years.
The show is even more fascinating when the hatching season arrives.
Pay attention to our next news to find out on what date and cuantity these figile carriers of life have seen the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
