ABOUT HOLBOX



Holbox means Black Hole in the Mayan language. It is also well known as whale shark island.

It’s located in the North of Quintana Roo state, northwest of Cancun, in what is considered the beginning of the Riviera Maya. 21°31′18″N 87°18′36″O

Holbox is a sand dune island connected to the Yucatan peninsula. The union is produced from a mix of vegetation such as mangroves, palm trees and endemic plants. This makes a perfect refuge for birds and marine animals, who use it as a breeding ground.

These natural aspects make it perfect for Eco tourism.

The most remarkable aspect of Holbox is the beautiful view of the Sun set, only possible to be seen here due to its geographical position in the Riviera Maya. The sun sets here are truly stunning.

The island offers a tranquility and charm that make it a unique place in the Riviera Maya. Perfect for honey moons, weddings, and ideal for families.

The conditions of the calm Sea, sand streets, golf cart and bicycle traffic, and the friendly locals combine to make this island an excellent choice to disconnect from the modern world.
