Wildlife Experiences in Quintana Roo

While Quintana Roo has its share of party-loving cities, relaxing beaches, and historic ruins, it’s also one of the best places in Mexico for wildlife enthusiasts. Swim with whale sharks off the coast of Isla Holbox between June and September, look for crocodiles in mangrove forests, or snorkel around the Great Maya Reef. Meanwhile, bird-watchers won’t want to miss Cozumel or Isla Contoy.
