Summertime the season for….. – Cozumel Activities

Cozumel Turtle Rescue and Release

If you happen to be looking for something to do in Cozumel that isn’t quite so publicized or typical then helping out with the Turtle rescue and release programCozumel Toursaa might just be something out of this world for you!  I am speaking from experience I have done this a few times and even taken my small children to participate after I had experienced it and loved it, trust me this is definitely a great Cozumel Familiy Activity!  The Sea Turtles begin to arrive in May on the Cozumel beaches on the east side of the island to lay their eggs in huge nests that they dig in the sand.  The Turtle federation here on the island marks each nests and counts them on a daily basis until and after the eggs hatch.  Now this starts in May but runs all the way through September and even some in October!  So there is plenty of time to plan your Cozumel vacation and add this to your do list.  You can meet the volunteers on the other side of the island, follow them over there or get in touch and ride out there with them.  I’ll put a link with their info at the end of the article.

What you will get to do on this valiant experience is enriching as you volunteer and help check and monitor nests along with professionals from the federation.  You will help count eggs and track how many hatch and even how many survive.  If you volunteer during the earlier months you may even be going late late late at night to count eggs.  If you go during the latter part of the season you may get lucky enough to dig out the baby turtles as they hatch, count them and then let them walk out to the water on their own.  It’s really quite an experience and something that is a worthy cause and just fun.

Swim with the biggest FISH in the world

If you haven’t heard about this yet then you might be missing out on a once in a lifetime experience!  June, July and August are the season for the annual Cozumel ToursWhale Shark Migrations!  Now this tour is not here on the island but Cozumel is awesome and not far from the sites where this Gentle Giants migrate each year.  This Cozumel tour can be taken from Cozumel by either booking a tour to take you their or going directly to Holbox island, which is located on the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula or you can travel to Isla Mujeres which is right by Cancun.  It’s definitely a day trip but the experience of being able to get in the water and snorkel alongside these gentle giants is unforgettable.

The whale sharks are the largest fish in the world and migrate through the area during these months in groups as they feed.  The whale sharks are curious creatures and are known to spend time in an area with swimmers if they are curious and in a playful mood.  This said you should not touch the sharks on tours as they are protected.  If you are adventurous then jsut go straight to the island on your own and hire a boat for the day.  The other way is to book a tour with a company that will usually include lunch and transportation to and from the snorkel areas.
