Considered an exclusive destination unspoiled by mass tourism, making it an ideal getaway for vacationers searching for a true escape from the ordinary. Rich in marine life and a variety of endemic and migratory birds, guests will observe yellow-lord parrots, painted buntings, and flamingos. Isla Holbox is a narrow, elongated island in the north of the Yucatán Peninsula in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. Only a very small part of the island is inhabited, Holbox is the only real settlement on the island. A ferry crosses a shallow lagoon from the mainland delivering travelers to the island, but the first thing you notice when stepping aboard is that there are no cars allowed on the island. During the day you will see a car or a truck occasionally for construction but they all leave by the last cargo ferry.
A Secluded Natural Treasure
Seasonally Holbox is drier during the months of December to April with its sub-humid climate offering a warm stable and consistent temperature year-round. If you are looking for peace on Holbox, you should proceed to the beach as soon as possible. A paradise adventure begins amidst one of the safest beaches for learning how to kiteboard. There is a lagoon called Punta Cocos, in which bioluminescence can be observed on dark nights. Rent a bicycle, the easiest and cheapest way to explore the island’s secluded attractions. The best spots include Punta Mosquito, Punta Cocos, and the pier at the main town of Holbox. You can stumble upon impressive street art designs painted on the buildings. Watching the sunset from the beach is an essential part of any island holiday and due to the position of the island, the sun sets directly over the sea lighting the sky up in pink, burnt orange, purple and red.
