WHALE SHARKS and MANTA RAYS -- Though they are the largest species of shark, whale sharks are plankton feeders and harmless to humans. They follow their food source up the coast of Central America, around the Yucatan Peninsula and into the Gulf of Mexico. From mid-May through early September, they have been congregating in large numbers near Isla Mujeres. For the 2013 season, it was estimated that more than 300 whale sharks gathered for this feeding extravaganza. Adding to the excitement, in recent years the whale sharks have been joined in Mexico by scores of large manta rays, also plankton feeders. By Government regulation designed to protect the animals, no scuba diving is permitted, so all interactions are simply accomplished on snorkel. The result is a glorious and easily accessible opportunity for all lovers of marine wildlife and underwater photographers.

NA BALAM HOTEL, Playa Norte, Isla Mujeres -- Quite different from the gigantic hotels and resorts in Cancun, Na Balam is a boutique hotel set on a wide private beachfront location on the northern tip of Isla Mujeres. The resort features just 35 spacious rooms and suites in a very clean and minimalistic decor. There is a beachfront restaurant with excellent Mexican specialties, seafood and delicious "botanas" snacks; a small and relaxing swimming pool with heated jacuzzi; and an on-site Yoga Studio & School.

SOLO BUCEO -- Island Dreams arranges professional snorkel boat services with Solo Buceo. Solo Buceo has more than 25 years of experience serving snorkelers and scuba divers. They will pick you up right off the beach in front of NaBalam.

MORE INFO -- Island Dreams' owner Ken Knezick has made multiple visits to Isla Mujeres. Ken has posted an extensive destination report and photo gallery. Find further details, travel tips and photos here: Quintana Roo Whale Shark Report
