Holbox, Mexico

The island of Holbox features a great location just north of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is surrounded by the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea and the beautiful emerald shades of the Gulf of Mexico. It can be reached by crossing the Yalahau Lagoon by ferry or motor boat from the town of Chiquila. Because of its location, the island is home to a wonderful variety of marine life, as well as beautiful exotic birds that inhabit the lush vegetation of the mangroves.

Rivers divide the island into three main parts, one of which is where you’ll find the town and the majority of the tourism infrastructure. Holbox has the charm of a small fishing village, where people still get around on bikes or golf carts. The town is small, with houses, bungalows and cabanas, and life moves at a relaxed pace.
