Holbox, which means “black hole” in Maya, is an island found in the northern part of Quintana Roo. This fisherman’s island is part of Yum Balam Natural reserve, a natural space of 154,052 acres of shore and offshore territory. Needless to say, you can find here a lot of wildlife from whale sharks in the summertime, flamingos by the Yalahau Lagoon, and many friendly fishes and birds around. Currently, Isla Holbox has a car restriction in place so you will be moving around on a bike or a golf cart but it is also very walkable. I never miss an opportunity to visit this magical place with kilometers of shallow waters and you shouldn’t either. So if it is on the trip or next, make sure to explore in this page and find the right experiences for you.
