Shark Beach, Isla Mujeres

1.0
#5 of 6 in Parks in Isla Mujeres
Get up close and personal with the apex predators of the ocean at Shark Beach. Head to fenced-off swimming areas where you can feed and swim with subdued sharks. The local beach is graced with crystal clear water and soft sand; you can work on your tan from the shoreline or safely swim in shark-free water. Thankfully, the only sharks here live in pools surrounded by nets. Complete your visit by heading over to one of many beachside restaurants, where you can dine on authentic, traditionally prepared cuisine.

  • To mean enjoying the fish and snorkel in the blue sea, tourist destinations, not natural and the beach was. Across the sea on the other side is the hotel zone in Cancun, so look at it, "or staying in that neighborhood," and ended with much thought.

  • well, it's a place that costs a little find, must be consulted. humble is that is not a large company, there is a restaurant on the beach is not expensive. We went on family that my son wanted to touch a dolphin or shark, and didn't spend a lot of money in at the delphinius. well I went 100 MXN my son played and will take a photo. I think that is not well the captivity, but the dolphins is worse and no one alleges only because they are a great company. My son was happy and explain all about the freedom of the animals, but it is difficult to be consistent, if after some leads them to the zoo.

  • The best thing is the beach. The worst thing is the shark cat in captivity, who use it for photo, pevia tip. Really unfortunate that it is used like an animal in captivity as attraction tourist. I do not recommend to buy the tour leading to eat there.
