Few other experiences in life can compare to traveling abroad to an exotic beach destination. That said there are some simple yet important beach safety tips that every traveler should consider when traveling to any beach destination. For example, the internationally recognized flag symbols on most beaches will indicate different levels of danger. A double red flag simply means that it is much too dangerous to swim.

Current Conditions Are Safe For All Levels Of Swimmers

Conversely, a single red flag will indicate that it is dangerous to swim, while some bathers may find that wading into knee-deep water is safe. A yellow flag in most beach settings indicates that there is moderate danger and that strong swimmers will likely be okay to swim. Finally, a green flag is universally known to represent mild or inviting ocean or beach conditions. A green flag simply implies that the current conditions are safe for all levels of swimmers on the beach.

Never Combine Alcohol And Swimming

Another simple strategy that can go a long way in keeping everyone safe on a beach vacation is to never drink alcohol and swim. It is widely understood that alcohol and boating or alcohol and swimming never mix. Play it safe and be smart by saving the alcohol enjoyment for an evening after dinner. Many accidents have occurred at the beach because people chose to combine alcohol and swimming. It is also a good idea to be aware of any dangerous wave conditions or possible riptides or rip currents. Another key concern is that of lightning. Tropical beach destinations will have thunderstorms and lightning.

Diving Into Unknown Waters

It is obvious that lightning and water are a dangerous combination. Anytime there is a report of a thunderstorm or lightning it is advised to get out of the water and seek shelter. Finally, diving into unknown waters can be a very dangerous proposition. Be cautious and stay safe by never diving in areas where you are uncertain of what lies underneath the water. Most modern beach vacations are amazingly enjoyable, relaxing and incredibly rewarding.

However, it is well worth considering these simple beach safety tips as a way to stay safe while at the beach.

For those unfamiliar, who exactly are Cerati and Soda Estereo?

permanentprogramoftheseaturtleThanks to the efforts of Mazatlan Aquarium through its Permanent Program of the Sea Turtle, born the first baby of Olive Ridley Turtles of the season in Mazatlan that besides being a very good forecast will contribute to the recovery of the species.

According to information provided by Jose Barron Hernandez, Program Coordinator, from January to date they have been recovered 291 nests with a total of 26,740 eggs.

The Permanent Program of the Sea Turtle consists in caring for the species from the nesting until their release in the ocean (the turtle nesting period began on June 1 and will end until November 30).

Daily Mazatlan Aquarium staff works night tours of the beaches of Mazatlan, from Olas Altas to Cerritos, where spawning of the species is monitored, later the eggs are collected and taken to the hatchery of the Aquarium, where as soon as they are born they are released into the sea.

For the success of this program it is very important to continue working in coordination with municipal authorities, hoteliers, restaurateurs and civil society to prevent the plundering of the nests, which is a federal crime.

If you see a turtle laying eggs on the beaches of Mazatlan, please communicate yourself with the phones 066 or 981-7815 where trained staff will assist you.

We work together to safeguard the Olive Ridley Turtle!
