The "Yellow Caps" urge everyone to avoid groups and to follow measures against C-19. 

Remember that on Halloween and Day of the Dead, the epidemiological light remains yellow.

Because the state government's epidemiological light place Isla Mujeres in the Yellow status for risk of contagion of coronavirus, members of the program Social Participation Liasons "Yellow Caps" are urging the population to avoid Halloween parties & Day of the Dead gatherings. 

While it is true that this is currently the New Normality, sanitary measures for the prevention of Covid-19 continue, and it is necessary for the population to intensify the correct use of face masks, frequent hand washing and use of antibacterial gel, and the implementation of healthy distancing. 

In addition, everyone should avoid parties and gatherings of people to prevent the spread, especially when there is a risk of a second wave of the disease.

Remember the Epidemiological light is still yellow. Large parties and events for Halloween and Day of the Dead are prohibited. Let's help reduce contagion and act responsibly.

Turtles continue nesting in October.

They nest along the eastern beaches. Tortugranja staff and volunteers gather the eggs and incubate them in the sand in a pen outside the facility. Three species nest annually in Isla Mujeres, Greens, Loggerheads, and Hawksbills. The season officially ends on the 15th, but monitoring continues thru the end of the month. Photos of nest hatching out at MaraVilla Caribe Bed & Beach, that was missed by the Tortugranja patrols.







Oct. 6-10, -Draconid meteors, peaking on evening of Oct. 7, but should be worth watching on the night before and after, also This is an evening meteor shower, that you don't have to stay up late to watch...look before the waning moon rises in mid-to-late evening. It is usually a slow shower with a meteor every 10-15 minutes. But it is known for having 'bursts" of hundreds or thousands of meteors in occasional years, which aren't predicted with any certainty.  "Meteor showers are like fishing. You go, and sometimes you catch something." 

Oct 20-21-22-Orionid meteors peak in the early morning hours. There's more activity after midnight and the maximum amount in the pre-dawn hours of Oct. 20th & 21st . These are "shooting stars" from Halley's Comet & occur from early October to early November as the earth passes thru its debris.
