jelly fish

We saw so many jellyfish on the beach and in the water that it discouraged ocean swimming, which disappointed us. Is this a specific time period phenomena? Is there a time they can be avoided?

There is no specific time or location when they appear. My understanding is that if there has been a storm at sea it will at times blow them ashore.

We have been there 4 times and on one trip we saw a lot of them - but not every day. On the other 3 trips we saw one small one only

The jelly fish in Cayo coco are harmless but I wouldn't suggest stepping on them or picking them up. We found it interesting walking down the beach and looking closely at these fascinating creatures.

During snorkeling our guide put a very small one in my hands, no stings or other negative effects but best to ask.

We found the jelly fish that were around during our trip Jan 23-30 didn't stop anyone from wandering the beaches or swimming.

Anyone see the doc. on jellyfish the other night? About the oceans warming up and the jellyfish 'blooming' like crazy, invading...about the HUGE jellyfish off the coasts of Japan...
