It is currently the season for swimming with the whale sharks, and turtles are mating offshore & nesting on the eastern beaches. The mating is visible by day, especially off Punta Sur, the South Point. The nesting happens in the wee hours, and there are Tortugranja personnel, volunteers, and Naval staff monitoring the beaches to prevent people from disrupting them, and to gather and transport the eggs for incubation.
By far, most of the turtles nesting in Isla Mujeres are Green turtles (called Blancas in Spanish), and the second most common are the huge Loggerheads, and there are some Hawksbills. The Green turtles take ~60 days to hatch and the hatchlings are released by the public at events at dusk on Media Luna or Guadalupana beaches. The releases will begin in about a month & be held periodically until early October.
Lately the water has been very calm and there have been many manta rays, with many swimming upside down, in addition to many whale sharks. Offshore from MVC, we have been seeing dolphins & turtles from the balcony, and lotsa big fish while snorkeling.

el Bufalo..in Salina Chica, on the left/east side of the road, with a pink stripe above and plants painted on the front wall, and a white barrel grill and tables out front. Coming from downtown, Salina Chica is the first colonia/village, and is past Colegio Bachilleres high school, and the restaurant is on the first block. If you come to the tortilleria and street to the right..you have gone too far.
Chicken with peanuts and veggies comes with a spring roll, only $50 pesos. Less than $4.00 US.
4 different homemade sauces. Some kind of spicy others kind of sweet. — with Ibette de Alcocer in Isla Mujeres.
