The Mexican Caribbean offers many outdoor activities. You can enjoy exotic beaches in Mahahual, archaeological ruins in Tulum, a pink lagoon in Yucatan and another one with 7 shades of blue in Bacalar, you can see the egg laying of the turtles in Akumal, etc. For the more daring there is also the possibility of snorkeling or diving on the second largest coral reef in the world in Cozumel or swimming with whale sharks in Holbox.
Holbox is an island located in the Caribbean Sea, north of the state of Quintana Roo. In addition to having some beautiful beaches, for lovers of risk sports there is the possibility of being able to swim with whale sharks. For you to get the idea, a whale shark can measure up to 15 meters long and weigh up to 21 tons. In addition, its open mouth can reach a diameter of one and a half meters. They usually swim alone, unless they are looking for food, which they usually do in a group. Luckily, their food is based on plankton, krill and small crustaceans and fish, so there is no risk for humans.
Although this animal species is of temperate waters like those offered by the Caribbean, only during the months of June to September it is possible to carry out this activity. Squalo Divers (https://www.squalodivers.com/en/) offers the possibility of different diving tours and other activities at sea, such as visiting wrecks or snorkeling. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy this unique experience and enjoy everything that Mexico and its coast offers.
