The pier

A perfect spot for an early morning start, sipping a freshly-squeezed orange juice while watching the sunrise, or setting off on one of our many Holbox tours. Found just off the main square, the pier is the ideal place to take in your environment. Stroll up to the end and watch the birds dive into the sea, or even take a dip yourself.

If you wish to celebrate or treat yourself, the shop Yo Amo Mexico in the main square has chilled champagne and is only two blocks away.

Punta Coco

At the westernmost point of the island, you’ll find Punta Coco, one of the island’s calmest beaches – and a perfect place for a little introspection. We recommend taking a picnic and enjoying a pleasant bike ride over, taking in the sights on your way. When you arrive, gaze across to the uninhabited Isla Pasión (Passion Island) and if the tide is low, wander along the sandbar to explore it.
