Isla Mujeres celebrates fifth annual Whale Shark Festival

This year Isla Mujeres celebrated the fifth annual Whale Shark Festival. Mayor Hugo Sanchez and municipal tourism director Eyder J. Hoth were both in attendance for one of Isla Mujeres’ most important annual events. Whale Shark season officially begins May 15 and lasts until September. During this time, visitors to Cancun will have the opportunity to swim with these incredible creatures that reach up to 50 feet long. The size of these majestic fish and their impressive five-foot jaws make swimming alongside them a safe, emotional and unforgettable experience. Festival activities included a free concert held on the Isla Mujeres municipal esplanade featuring the Mexican Navy Symphony Orchestra.
