Whale shark season in the Mexican Caribbean has just begun, and if you would like to live this experience for yourself, visit Cancun or the Riviera Maya between mid-May and mid-September when these giant fish congregate where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean Sea. Here the water is particularly nutrient-rich, and the whale sharks spend the summer months feeding and breeding in the warm tropical water.
