Whale Shark Watching

Holbox

Holbox is part of the Yum Balam Flora and Fauna Protection area since it has several marine and vegetal species. This includes the whale shark, a fish that has taken the waters of Cabo Catoche as its residence.

Most of the visitors come to Holbox with the hope of seeing this fish, the biggest in the world that can be as 14 meters long with gray skin, this is why it was confused with a shark.

They can be distinguished by the white spots that adorned their skin and its food, which is plankton. This is why they are absolutely harmless. You can even swim next to these animals in total peace. Best time to come and live this experience is from the beginning of the spring to the end of autumn.

Cabo Catoche is located in the precise place in which the Mexican Golf and the Caribbean sea divided themselves. It is only possible to get here through a boat.
