At 21:15, you will arrive to Xpu Ha Bay. There, you will meet your guide and learn about the ocean ecosystem in an information session. Next, you will walk along the beach looking for sea turtles. If you spot one, you could witness a turtle making a nest, laying eggs, covering the nest, and going back to the sea. Her eggs will hatch about 60 days later. You could also see baby turtles hatching and making their way to the water. Your patrol of the beach helps sea turtle conservation by surveying nesting turtles and protecting them from illegal extraction and predators.
