Brightly coloured buildings, endless beaches and a charming town are the main features of this friendly destination on the Mexico Caribbean Coast. While the main focus of your holidays to Holbox are likely to be the blissful beaches of Punta Mosquito and Punta Coco, nature lovers will also find plenty of wildlife to catch a glimpse of – from flamingos and other species of bird to grand whale sharks swimming in the surrounding waters.
Holbox is traditionally a fishing village and it isn’t uncommon to see fishermen carrying their nets as they walk through the streets. With very few vehicles or even visitors, you’ll escape the hustle and bustle of the busier parts of Mexico, with a wealth of natural beauty to explore. Holidays in Holbox are ideal for those seeking something alternative to sunning themselves on the beach. There are numerous boat tours hailing from the island, offering everything from a quiet trip on the water to fishing, birding tours and even crocodile-spotting. The must-see thing to do is to visit the whale sharks, however – those feeling brave enough should throw on their wetsuit to even try swimming with these fantastic creatures. Whether you’re a seasoned diver or a keen beginner, you’ll enjoy a visit to Akumal. The waters surrounding the island of Cozumel are considered the best in the world.
