Our Featured Video of the Week was filmed by Simon Spear in the beautiful Yucatan Peninsula just offshore from Cancun, with incredible footage of whale sharks, cenotes and scuba views with an exceptionally educational voiceover. Once a collection of small fishing villages, this portion of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, starting at Cancun and stretching south, has evolved into one of the most popular and dynamic tourist destinations on the western Caribbean Sea.

“The Yucatan peninsula is one of the busiest tourist destinations in the world and every year just offshore from Cancun, the largest fish in the ocean aggregates in vast numbers to feed. This very special aggregation is one of only a handful of such known sites where whale sharks aggregate and it has turned into a valuable ecotourism contribution to the local economy. Filmed on Panasonic GH4 and Canon 7D” -Simon Spear
