Well after all the hype over the last few weeks – we have finally been to turtle fest and run the 10km! Lets start off with turtle fest. Staff and interns took it in turns to attend from Friday through to Sunday. We are now highly adept at facepainting turtles, sharks/shark shaped dolphins and non specific glittery fish. The festival itself was very interesting with many games and activities regarding turtle conservation. The highlights were the opening and closing mayan ceremonies where they blessed the gods for the turtles and the bounty of the sea.

Here you can enjoy some pictures of it!!
