Sunrise this morning from MaraVilla Caribe Bed & Beach. And the grounded David Buoy to the north, which is out of the water completely and behind the new condos north of our neighbors.

Yesterday from the City--Because the tourism infrastructure, including the hotels and restaurants, did not suffer damage from the passage of Hurricane Delta, the municipality of Isla Mujeres is ready to receive the thousands of visitors that year after year prefer this vacation destination to enjoy its tourist attractions and its beaches in optimal conditions.
    Isla Mujeres -which is a favorite destination for both national and foreign tourists--is in ideal condition ideal to continue its orderly and responsible economic reactivation. It is receiving visitors this weekend, offering them a green, healthy island with beaches in excellent condition.

     This is attributed to the rapid response of the municipal government after the passage of Hurricane Delta, as well as the preventative actions and teamwork which minimized the impact, and made recovery of the beauty that characterizes this destination easier and quicker. With intense efforts, the brush and debris were rapidly removed from the streets, the beaches were restored, and this Pueblo Magico was ready to receive visitors this weekend. 

       Isla Mujeres is characterized by having a culture of prevention and preparation that undoubtedly contributed to the rapid reactivation, and is why the island was cleaned-up within days of the passage of the hurricane.  

   Noti Isla Mujeres     

Yesterday Naval personnel responded to a call for assistance and rescued the boat "4 Hermanas" (4 Sisters) with one male aboard, which was adrift 4 km (2 nautical miles) northwest of Isla Mujeres due to mechanical failures in its propulsion system. The man was in good health and left under his own power after he and the boat were taken to the Naval dock, where it is expected that the staff with the Harbor Master's office will complete the required procedures.

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.
