Whale Shark Festival In Isla Mujeres

The Department of Tourism for Isla Mujeres and its partners announce the Whale Shark Festival, a five-day community extravaganza that showcases the achievements, the traditions and the environmental splendor of Isla Mujeres. The Festival will be held July 1-5, 2009 in Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo, Mexico. The family-friendly Whale Shark Festival will showcase the time-honored dances, local cuisine, nearby businesses and works from local artisans.  Guests can also participate in some of the water activities that have made Isla Mujeres a favorite vacation spot: sport fishing, diving and snorkeling tours of the pristine reefs and of course swimming with whale sharks, the largest fish in the world and an endangered species.
