Escape to tropical Isla Holbox


Relax on Holbox, a remote island with white sandy beaches.

Off the northern coast of the Yucatan peninsula, a two-hour drive from Cancun, Isla Holbox is separated from the mainland by a shallow lagoon full of pelicans, dolphins, and flamingos. Here, cars are not allowed hence, the island is best explored on foot, bicycle, or by golf cart.

You will find rental companies at every street corner. Dive with whale sharks and hammerheads, kayak in the mangroves in search of alligators, and ride a horse on the white sand beaches. Take a yoga session at dawn at one of Holbox's hippie chic beach hotels.

A sandbank just off the island in the middle of the water is a wonderful place to go for a walk. Stay at Dream, a traditional hotel on a beautiful beach. Guests enjoy an ultra-fresh breakfast, terraces with hammocks, and two refreshing pools, perfect after a day exploring the island.
