Holbox City Guide

This week let us introduce one our favorite gem in Mexico, Holbox.

Holbox is a small preserved and wild island. On this undiscovered island there is no car, shoes are frowned and you can see the most beautiful beaches in Yucatan. It’s frequent to see whales and sharks!

If you’re going there, here are some places you must go:

To stay:

A romantic and comfortable boutique hotel situated in the middle of the nature. You usually get a room with a view on the ocean and the beach is beautiful.

Few years ago an Italian couple fall in love with that place and created this lovely eco-friendly hotel.



We love staying at this luxury hotel, the service is amazing and the staff is very friendly. You can enjoy a spa and an art gallery. We love taking a nap in the hammock in the room.


This one is the small tropical style hotel. It offers small bungalows in a tropical garden with a lot of trees to stay under the shadow. This place is unpretentious and perfect to relax!

Casa Impala is a nice house decorated in a bohemian way with some Moroccan inspirations. There is a roof top sun deck and a siesta bungalow. It is located just step away from a idyllic beach. Perfect for a couple who wants to stay in a romantic house.


To eat:

- Mandarina Beach Club/ Casa de La Tortugas:

This restaurant is hidden in the tropical forest; it’s overlooking the beach. Amazing food, great service, beautiful place. We love to stay on the rooftop to watch the sunset with a margarita!

Best pizza on the Island. They are fresh and cooked in the oven in front of you. Definitely a place to go after a big swimming with the whale sharks.

This French bakery serves the best breakfast on the Island. If you’re tired about Mexican food go there! Eat one of their amazing croissants on the terrace. It’s charming. Perfect if you have kids, there is a playroom for them.

This is a nice Mexican barefoot restaurant that serves traditional Yucatan food. If you want to eat seafood, go there!

To shop:

A boho chic store where you can find beautiful swimwear and decoration for your house. Everything is hand made and it’s beautiful.
