In October there are occasional releases of baby turtles that were incubated at the Tortugranja, at dusk on the eastern beaches of Media Luna or Guadalupana. (Last year the last public release was Oct. 7). The Blue Crabs migrate with the full moons, and there are usually organized groups to help them safely across the roads. Watch out for them in Sac Bajo and along the southeastern part of the island. The American holiday of Halloween is observed by the expats & a few candy loving kids, while the whole community observes Day of the Dead on November 1st & 2nd. Special foods are available in the weeks before, and Hanal Pixan altars appear in mid or late October. The Orianid meteor shower due on the 18th & 19th will be affected by light from the full moon.

Nice video by Tony Garcia of turtles emerging from the sand
Nice video of the turtle release, showing the lil guys 'flying' away undersea. Info on caption is incorrect..The majority of turtle here are Greens, then many fewer loggerheads, and hawksbills are a small minority. Last year the last release was Oct. 7. They begin laying in May and the eggs take ~60 days to hatch. As of September, 60,000 had been released of the ~100,000 incubated/incubating. Video...By Stephanie Hammond de Boboli·
