Just off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, the sleepy and serene island of Holbox features no cars and few tourists but is teeming with one group of visitors
wildlife in the form of flamingos, pelicans, and whale sharks. Relaxation is a requirement while visiting this undisturbed piece of paradise, where a lazy afternoon consists of lounging on the beach and fishing in pristine lagoons.
Opulent island accommodations include bungalows with waterfront terraces, outdoor showers, and personal indoor swimming pools. You can also book such lavish activities as in-room massages and private dinners on the beach. Curl up with a book on one of the island’s famous Holbox hammocks or make your way to Yalahau Cenote, a swimming hole nestled in a mangrove forest.
