It is truly amazing to swim with these gentle giants in their natural environment! Isla Mujeres, a small island near Cancun, has the largest known aggregation of whale sharks every summer. It wasn’t that long ago that it was only a sleepy little fishing village. Now, it seems to be the whale shark capital, built up to a community now sustained by tourism. Before the regulations become prohibitive, snorkel with the whale sharks in their natural environment, and cross it off your bucket list!
