Dolphin & Whale Watching, Cancun

4.4
#9 of 68 in Wildlife in Cancun
Swim with the world's largest fish, the whale shark, in the warm Caribbean waters just off the coast of Cancun. A dolphin and whale watching experience allows you to enjoy the sights of white-sand beaches lined with glitzy hotels while sailing along the scenic coast in search of the area's big marine residents. You'll be able to see whales feeding on plankton--with some tours, you'll even be able to snorkel alongside them. Keep an eye for turtles and stingrays, other notable inhabitants of the area. The full-day tour includes snorkeling gear, safety lessons, complementary drinks, and a tasty meal on the boat or on the shore.

Where to stay in Cancun

Cancun's accommodations cater to everyone from spring-break partygoers to distinguished luxury seekers. By far the most densely developed area for hotels is the boomerang-shaped Punta Nizuc-Cancun and the connecting Bulevar Kukulcan, projecting out into the sea and offering prime beach access. Among the stylish resorts, you can find expansive party hostels offering large swimming pools. If you'd like a more independent Cancun vacation, consider staying at one of the private rentals scattered along the coast.
