2014 Turtle Season Crowned with Success
Perfectly shaped for millions of years, Cabo has some of the most secluded beaches – each tucked away safely from the majority of land based predators, creating perfect nesting grounds for sea turtles. The species you are most likely to observe on our Los Cabos beaches is the olive ridley. With an olive green shell averaging 30 inches in length, this omnivore is a dear and welcome visitor to our area.
At Casa Dorada, we are proud to have successfully concluded yet another turtle season, which officially ended on December 31st, although there are still some nests to hatch. During 2014 Casa Dorada protected about 800 olive ridley nests, and more than 76,000 baby turtles were released into the sea. It’s important to mention that only one in a thousand will reach maturity in about 9 to 11 years. The remaining eggs that are yet to hatch are currently maintained in an incubation chamber to protect them from cool winter temperatures.
Casa Dorada has been committed to turtle protection since 2008 when we received and successfully safeguarded our first nest. Much to the delight of staff and guests alike, in October of the same year, a mandate was passed internally to initiate nightly patrols of the entire Cabo San Lucas Bay. This has helped protect nests in particularly tourist-heavy areas, where some nests had to be artificially incubated.
Since then, the Casa Dorada Sanctuary Project has been created and mindfully managed to protect our seafaring friends.
Casa Dorada New Year’s Eve at a Glance
Happy New Year Everyone! We thought we would give you all some time to get into the 2015, because we know the first few days you were probably still curing the after-party effects and writing 2014 instead of 2015 on your checks.
Well, anyway I think you’re ready now to check out some really cool pictures. Whether you rang in the New Year with us at Casa Dorada, during the CIRCUS PARTY, or want to see what you’d missed, you just have to see our gallery.
We have posted over 100 photographs of the big party on our Facebook Page (Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa). You’ll see many beautiful people, fireworks, dancing, and more.
And if you’re in Cabo San Lucas today, keep in mind that Three Kings Day (Día de los Reyes Magos) is a big deal in Mexico and you’ll see everyone celebrating on January 6th as they munch on the traditional oval-shaped cake, known as Rosca de Reyes.
You can’t miss it!
