GBPT Riviera Maya, Mexico

Tulum14 Jul 2014 - 29 Jul 2014

Stayed in GBPT in Riviera Maya Mexico for a two week holiday with my girlfriend. I knew this was the time of year Whale Sharks are around Holbox, Isla Mujeres and Isla Contoy and so I booked to swim with them. Not only did we see these in Mexico we saw a Flying Gurnard at our resort reef which was beautiful, we saw Southern Stingray and Green Sea Turtles at Akumal and also a great Barracuda which was enormous! The other thing I saw was what I think was a Lesser Electric Ray (Carribean Ray) also at our hotels reef. I definitley reccomend Mexico for its snorkelling and diving!

We are going here in October. On the page it says you can see Manatee there sometimes - did you see any? Do you know if they are seen often?

Are Lesser Electric Rays dangerous?

I want to dive here next June, are there whale shark there then? Or will it be too early?

Daniel Jackson

We snorkeled with about 50 whale sharks and 5 mantas on June 22 this year. They said the day before there were only about 7 or 8 sharks so it is a bit dependent on luck.
