Villa Alma Rosa: Turtle Nesting Season
One of our favorite villas along the Riviera Maya is Villa Alma Rosa, a stunning four-bedroom home on Jade Beach in Akumal, where the inviting Mexican-Caribbean Sea is just steps away. The villa´s beachfront location coupled with the inclusion of a dedicated staff – including a butler, housekeeping, chef, and concierge – set it apart from others in the region, but what truly makes it shine is the unique opportunity to witness sea turtles nesting and hatching right in Alma Rosa’s backyard! The season of this natural phenomenon spans from May to September.
At Journey Mexico, we know how important it is to protect pristine natural areas and the wildlife that inhabits them. We´re happy to work closely with Alma Rosa, who share the priority of environmental sensitivity to ensure a sustainable future.
To protect the turtles and their nests, the property has implemented the following measures:
○ Providing education and information to guests about turtle conservation.
○ Limiting human activity on the beach after sunset during nesting season.
○ Working with local authorities to monitor and protect the nesting areas.
○ Implementing sustainable practices to minimize the impact of the property on the environment.
What Can You Do?
For guests staying at Villa Alma Rosa during nesting season, there are a few guidelines to follow to help protect the turtles:
○ Avoid disturbing the nesting areas and keep a safe distance from the turtles.
○ Turn off flash photography, as this can unsettle the turtles.
○ Limit music volume, the vibration distress the nesting ritual.
○ Do not use any artificial lights on the beach at night, as this can disorient the hatchlings.
