tortuguitasIt has a been a busy few days for the turtles at The Royal Sands, eight females nested at the weekend and three more on Monday, bringing the tally to 63 nests and 7,628 eggs. A further 180 hatchlings were released last night to begin life at sea.
The overwhelming majority of our summer visitors to date have been green turtles, loggerheads are more common in the Riviera Maya and also tend to nest later in the season.
