Tips to do.

  • Enjoy our hammocks in the water – one of the most photographed icons on the island.
  • Visit Bar Arena in the main square. It’s the highest point in Holbox and offers great views of the island.
  • Visit the animal shelter (Refugio Animal Holbox). Don’t forget to leave a small donation so that they can continue to help these vulnerable animals.
  • Take a tour of the island’s urban murals.
  • Rent a golf cart and discover the island for yourself.
  • Never ever EVER miss a sunset.
  • Have a chat with the locals; they always have a good story to tell.
  • Buy a perfect souvenir from the shop ‘Yo Amo Mexico’ underneath Hotel Arena in the main square.
  • Enjoy the flora, fauna and beaches of Holbox with respect.
  • Never leave rubbish.
  • Stroll along the beach while enjoying a delicious ‘marquesita’; a typical sweet Mexican rolled-crepe.

Things to remember

  • There is only one ATM that provides Mexican Pesos on the island and it can often be empty or out-of-service. Bring money in cash, preferably in Mexican Pesos. There are still many places which don’t accept credit cards.
  • The only mobile phone provider that works on the island is Telcel and its affiliated international counterparts.
  • If you are arriving in Chiquilá by bus, keep your personal belongings close.
  • After 9.30pm, nobody arrives at or leaves the island; plan your flights around these important ferry crossing times.
  • Don’t forget a torch for walking at night.
  • You WILL NEED insect repellent and sunblock.
  • To really enjoy the island, we recommend a minimum stay of 3 days and 2 nights.
  • It IS slightly more expensive to reserve transfers to and from the hotel than to hire a car, however, it is much more convenient and easier as you cannot bring a car onto the island.
  • If you come by car, take the Mérida toll-road, on which you’ll see the turn-off for Holbox clearly signposted.
