Location + Surroundings
Holbox Island is located to the north of Cancún, where the Caribbean Sea converges with the Gulf of Mexico. Ancestral voices keep whispering old tales with the winds that refresh Holbox. They tell the stories of the Spanish galleons that disappeared in these waters, and they also tell the stories of the pirates like Francisco Molas who took their treasures. Nowadays people think that Molas found a crystalline source of water so beautiful that he decided to bury all his treasures in Holbox. Whoever finds the source will find the treasure. With only 2,000 mestizo inhabitants (Maya, pirates, Spanish and Cuban), sandy streets and a secluded beach, the atmosphere of this small fishing village is unrivaled. Holbox is part of the ecological reserve of “Yum Balam,” which covers 154,000 square kilometers of protected areas where unique species reside. The whale shark isn’t the only attraction in this place, either. The arrival of hawksbill turtles, pink flamingos, terns, white pelicans, different types of iguanas and horseshoe crabs are some examples of the natural wealth of this area. Upon arrival to the port, the island invites one to remove their shoes. Set aside all the stress that is brought on from the city and everyday life, and escape to Holbox Island. It is also advisable not to make plans – forget time, enjoy the landscape and nature, and watch birds and dolphins right on the beach. Holbox Island is authentic and rich with traditions of the sea – the best-kept secret in the Mexican Caribbean.
