ISLA MUJERES, 13 de julio.-
The port Authority had announced plans to cordone off the area of Playa Norte known as El Riito with buoys for the summer holiday season, but this has not been accomplished yet. The Harbor Master said this work, which is traditionally done at this time, will be carried out with assistance form the municipal Civil Protection agency. The Harbor Master gave assurances that they have been managing resources for this project since the beginning of the year, and it is almost certain that with support from the private sector this protective barrier will be installed to protect swimmers from boats.

Entrepreneurs are predicting that domestic tourist arrivals could increase by up to 60% and then continue to rise until hotel occupancy reaches 80%. Tourism service providers have reported that business has been good in recent days, with the arrival of many domestic tourists for the summer holiday season. There are fewer foreign tourists, and many of them are visiting to swim with the whale sharks. Promotions and discounts have been offered to encourage Mexican families to visit Isla Mujeres.

Saturday, July 20 9am Children's fishing tournament Weigh in-1pm
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.
There are small red crabs that migrate to & from the sea in July, watch out for them at night on the coastal road at the southeastern part of the isle.
Lobster season began July 1 and continues until the end of February.
