Vacationing in Mexico is always a special experience, as the local culture is in many ways very different from that of other countries. One would like to take some memories of the colorful and lively atmosphere home with them, and there are good opportunities to do so on Holbox.

Unlike in the big tourist centers in Cancún or Playa del Carmen, the possibilities for shopping on Holbox Island are still quite clear. There are only a few stores that sell classic souvenirs, but most of them are really from Mexico and not cheaply made in China or elsewhere. On Holbox you can find for example Huichol art from Jalisco, Alebrijes from Oaxaca, Catrinas, fabrics, garments and wood carvings from Yucatán and handicrafts from local people living here.

Most of the stores and stalls are located around the main square and in the local “shopping center”, which consists of a handful of them. In addition, there are small boutiques in some hotels or restaurants that offer selected pieces. Most stores open in the morning from 9:00 and close in the evening between 9:00 pm and 11:00 pm.
