Anniversary of the Independence of Mexico Celebrations September 16
Mexicans celebrate their country’s Independence Day with fireworks, parties (fiestas), food, dance and music on September 16. Flags, flowers and decorations in the colors of the Mexican flag – red, white and green – are seen in public areas in cities and towns in Mexico. Whistles and horns are blown and confetti is thrown to celebrate this festive occasion. "Viva Mexico" or "Viva la independencia” are shouted amidst the crowds on this day.
Turtle Release Season
During the summer months sea turtles come to Isla late at night to lay their eggs in the soft sand beaches. Trained volunteers from the Tortugranja, (Turtle Farm), a government sponsored organization for the protection of endangered sea turtles, collect the eggs in the early mornings and transfer them to the Turtle Farm for a 60-day incubation period. Once hatched, the baby turtles are put in ponds until released.
Beginning in late August through early October, the baby turtles are released into the sea. Two of the most frequently used locations are Playa la Media Luna in Centro and Playa Guadalupana towards the south end. The release is held at sunset and is wonderful experience.
Came stay at Casa La Mera Mora and enjoy a special September holiday!
