Witness the Majestic Cycle of the Sea Turtle




Visitors to the Tulum area are encouraged to learn more about sea turtle ecology and biology by visiting the Centro Ecologico Akumal Center (CEA). There you may view one of the displays located in the Center, attend a weekly sea turtle lecture, release baby sea turtles to the ocean, or sign up for the CEA Turtle Walk.

Since all species of sea turtles are endangered, CEA has established the CEA Turtle Watch Program (TWP) to protect the sea turtle populations from human impact and habitat destruction. The Turtle Watch Program is a permanent, on-going endeavor which achieves its goals through ecological research and sustainable management.
