Hey all... so it's that time of year again... hermit crab migration!!!

We don't know why the beachfront at Rojo Beach Bar is the chosen route (the drinks perhaps?) but every year in July, 1000's (and we mean THOUSANDS) of hermit crabs trek from the jungle, across our beachfront and to the water's edge... Then, after a long night of partying, they all walk the walk of shame back to the jungle as the sun comes up. The action starts mid evening. Come and see for yourself!!!

Usually happens for 3-4 consecutive nights... so hopefully for most of this week. Last night was the first night.

Not just the Hermit Crabs but the land crabs as well. Each night on the tiled breezeway I swear they do the crab version of square dancing complete with do-see-do's and changing partners.
