The majestic whale shark visits the Mexican Caribbean every year. The Gulf of Mexico, an area rich in nutrients and life, is the feeding site for this noble animal that allows us a respectful approach.

Leaving very early from Merida, you will arrive at the coast to enjoy swimming with the whale shark. Afterward, we will spend the afternoon and evening in the beautiful and little known Isla Blanca ... Enjoying the beach and the sea, we will prepare a delicious barbecue (meat and vegetables). If we are lucky we will have the opportunity to see sea turtles spawning!

On the way back, we will visit a cave that leads to the Maya underworld: Xibalba. With a ceremony and detailed explanation of the mythology, we will enter the cave until arriving at a shallow cenote.
