Experience Isla Holbox

Isla Holbox Overview
Fast facts
  • Relax on this peaceful island set in the Yum Balam Nature Reserve
  • Explore 36 kilometres of sandy beach by bike
  • Spot whale sharks, dolphins, flamingos and manta rays

As part of the Yum Balam Natural Reserve, visits to Isla Holbox offer the chance to truly escape from it all. It's a protected area set at a distance from the major tourist hotspots, leaving the island somewhat untouched and pristine. Tourists and locals alike are known to walk the streets barefoot. This small, remote island is mostly comprised of sandy white beaches to relax and unwind on. Its waters have a low depth that makes it easy for younger visitors and the elderly to enjoy safely. But the real draw to Isla Holbox is its ecotourism opportunities and the chance to get up close to incredible creatures and landscapes. Kayak through mangroves, swim alongside majestic, gentle whale sharks and observe flocks of pink flamingos, pelicans and cormorants in their natural habitats.
