About 400 athletes are expected to participate in the Triathalon "Triatlón de Convivencia Isla Mujeres-Punta Sur 2013" on November 3, when it begins at 10am. The swimming segment will be between the Captain Dulche facility and the Municipal Storm Shelter to Garrafon. (el recorrido a nado se llevará a cabo en el área marítimo que se ubica frente el restaurante-museo Capitán Dulché, a la altura del Refugio Municipal contra Huracanes, rumbo a El Garrafón.)The cycling segment will go from Garrafon at the southern part of the isle to the center part of the isle and take the cross street by Mundaca Hacienda and return to the starting point. The final part of the race will be running which will follow the same route as the cyclers, but will reach the area by the beach Acapulquito, and take a turn through the colonias to the street to Garrafon and return to the starting point. The event is open to people who have competed in other Triathalons, as well as people who have not. This is a local event in Isla Mujeres that is not sanctioned by the Federación Mexicana de Atletismo, and therefore will not affect the athletes rankings.

.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.
