Chances of seeing them nest have dwindled pretty much now, their season is really May-September. The CEA does regular turtle walks:


but they're done with them now, I believe.

The nesting season is almost over, the beaches are littered with roped off area with turtle nesting areas. to find them comming out of the water is a hit or miss activity. Has to be a full moon to see anything on the darkened beaches. you can snorkel in akumal and see the full size adult turtles.
