Caribbean Vibes Pure
Isla Holbox, the small Mexican island in the north of the Yucatán Peninsula, is probably one of the last places that has been spared from mass tourism. If you come here, you will not only experience the dream of sun, sand and sea, but also the Caribbean feeling of magical deceleration and total relaxation. Far away from the big tourist centers like Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Holbox Island offers year-round summer temperatures, long beaches of finest shell sand and an intact natural landscape waiting to be explored.
Here you can witness some of the most breathtaking sunsets you have ever seen. In addition, Mexican delicacies will tantalize your palate and the vibrant atmosphere will get your hips swinging to the rhythmic sounds of salsa. If that’s not enough, you can keep fit with sports activities, go on day trips, or simply pamper yourself at the hotel’s spa.
