I’m a lover of the world and far off places who is so excited that you’re here. Looking forward to sharing more of my world with you and all the things I love. I hope this site really does feel like a wellness oasis right here on the internet.
I visited Isla Holbox for the first time earlier this year and it was truly a trip I’d never forget. Since Tulum has gotten a lot more popular I was looking for a place that was a little bit more lowkey but still accessible from the Cancun airport. After a thorough search, Isla Holbox seemed like the perfect destination. Beautiful beaches, great food and really great people. You can easily fly into Cancun and take a bus or private taxi straight to the ferry. Tourism is still rather new to the area so this trip might take a little more planning than other destinations in Mexico. I’d say it’s totally worth it though and we felt really safe. Since Isla Holbox is a pretty small island (technically sand bar) everyone really knows eachother and it’s a super relaxed vibe. The folks that come to visit are looking for a lowkey option so it felt like no one came trying to mess up those vibes. If you’re planning a trip I found it hard to find information so going to share a few of my top tips for visiting this destination in Mexico, places to go and things to note!
If you’re looking for hotels, I’d recommend Che Holbox as the best overall option but Hotel Mittoz has been noted to be a great spot for digital nomads staying a little longer and looking for more solid Wifi options.
There are tons of options but definitely some better than others. We went to Restaurante Viva Zapata the first day and thought it was pretty expensive/underwhelming so I’d skip that. There are quite a few places to get good coffee and it was really nice to get food or coffee and eat it on the beach. Some of the google reviews are a little off so we also focused more on places we heard from locals or previous visitors were good.
