Manuel VALDEZ ISLA MUJERES, 1 de julio.-
On Wednesday there will be civic and social ceremonies for the graduation of 133 students who completed their studies at the middle school "Presidente Juarez", leaving 7 students who must take exams in August to obtain their certificate, because they did not complete four subjects successfully. This school year concludes with an general achievement rate of 8.0, compared to last year's rate of 7.9, but the goal this year was 8.3, which was not achieved. The closing ceremonies were held at the club "El Pescador".
Construction work begins Monday on a new classroom and there are 180 new students, in groups A to F. With respect to the students who failed, according to a new national standard, students entering the next grade immediately have a successfully completed at least three subjects ("deber" un un máximo de tres materias) . In case when, in the month of August, they must take their regulatory exams to continue on, there are four, and if they do not pass all four, they must repeat the previous grade. They must be under 15 years of age to obtain their certificates as repeaters. The school principal, Ramón Peña, provided this information and noted that it takes a lot of work from the parents and they must be more strict to reverse a situation of low achievement.Leer más...

Successful start for lobster season
Exitoso inicio de captura de langosta+] Ver mas.
The lobster season began Monday, after a four month ban, with high expectations by the fishermen, who left early to capture the crustaceans. Restaurants began selling the product at prices of 300-400 pesos, and may exceed 600 pesos, depending on the size and type of dish. Some of the more popular styles are stuffed, grilled, or prepared with coconut. The fishermen hope to exceed last season's harvest of 400 tons before the season ends on the 28th of February.

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.
