Have you ever had the chance to observe turtles mating?

While traveling in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, a couple of months ago I had the chance to go out to sea and observe whales, dolphins and turtles. Besides the fact that Puerto Escondido itself is a truly magical place, this experience was one of a kind.

After seeing a few of these animals, on our way back we encountered these turtles mating.  I have to add that the male turtle wasn’t too happy that we stopped and observed them for a bit.  They were moving, and splashing around and that’s when I got to take this photo.

So yes, this was ONE amazing and fascinating experience in the middle of the Seas of Oaxaca.
