Things to do

Snorkeling with Whale Sharks in Mexico

Cancun

In crystalline Caribbean waters, you gently float, dive and even lay hands on magnificent, tranquil whale sharks. The majesty of the animals and the vastness of the sea offer real understanding of man’s place on the planet. Top snorkeling with whale sharks in Mexico: whale sharks stay close to mysterious, unspoiled Holbox Island in Quintana Roo all summer long. When you come up for air, you find trees and lagoons filled with flamingoes, pelicans and other tropical birds.

Wild, Wild Life on Holbox Island, Quintana Roo

Cancun

One of Mexico's wildest and most singular states is Quintana Roo. Its world-famous white sand beaches and dazzling azure waters are home to the planet's second largest coral reef. Less known—but equally as impressive—is the state's incredible animal life. At Holbox island, visitors swim and commune with whale sharks, then frolic with dozens of other sea creatures while they kayak or scuba. On Isla Pajaros, you can actively help scientists preserve the island's flamingo populations. All the while, keep your eyes peeled for tapirs and big cats like jaguars, tigrillos and ocelots.

Deep Maya Green in the Jungles of Quintana Roo

Cancun

Remote Quintana Roo—closer to Cuba than to Mexico City—contains astounding jungles and breathtaking natural life that are just beginning to be discovered. Within them you find amazing biodiversity, exuberant flowers and trees, and vestiges of the Mayas’ magnificent civilization. Start your adventure with a day on the beach beneath an ancient Maya fortress at Tulum, then hit the jungles in search of manatees, tapirs and the most sublime forest dweller of all: the elusive jaguar. At sea, the state’s coral reefs feature some of the best diving and sport fishing on earth.
