  • We will start early to enjoy the nature and beauty of this small Caribbean island and spend an unforgettable day in Mexico's little paradise. The island Holbox (pronounced Holbosch), located north-west of Cancun is only 42 km long and 2 km wide and still quite original with many colorful shops, cafes, tiny little restaurants and Caribbean bars. Here, the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean and draws the colors of the sea in a variety of shades of turquoise. Our day starts with a ride in a very comfortable van ( with a maximum of 16 people) to Holbox, in the port of Chiquila a small motorboat will be waiting for us. The first part of our program begins with a visit to Passion Island, there we can admire the bird life (Pelicans, Cormorants, Herons, Frigates, Ospreys and most of the time Flamingos in their natural habitat. Also, with a little bit of luck Dolphins). The view is uniquely beautiful!
  • After Passion Island, we drive about 10 minutes with our motorboat to the main Island, here our tour guides will explain you some things about Mexico and the Holbox center. Now we leave for our Golf Car or horseback riding tour
  • After we finish all our activities, we are going to enjoy the best that our beach club has to offer. The beach restaurant has a direct view where we can enjoy a long and gently sloping sandy beach. Have a drink or a cocktail and relax in the water, immerse yourself into a completely different world. Now that you have free time, enjoy a walk on the sandbanks with your feet in the waves or the sand. We will take beautiful photos of you and yours, so you can focus in enjoying your time together, making memories. Optional sun beds close to the water are available if you want to add more luxury into your trip
  • Finally, we will have lunch together. With our feet in the sand and a cocktail in our hand, a beer or a soft drink. We will have plenty of free time to enjoy the shallow and often bath warm water. Take a rest, a siesta, a nap, or a meditation in the shadow of our beach club. Experience this unique island feeling with us! 

  • We start our day with a beautiful ride to passion island and afterwards to the main island of Holbox. Enjoy this little paradise and if we are lucky, we also see flamingos, pelicans, cormorants, eagles, stingrays and sometimes dolphins
  • We reach Holbox island early and take our first pictures by the colorful Holbox sign. We walk through the streets to the center with it's colorful houses, bars and restaurants. Hear lots of information about the island, the inhabitants and the history of Holbox. Don't miss your cameras! 
  • A day with the ultimate beach feeling! White and sandy beaches, sandbanks and turquoise water makes you feel like never going back anymore!

We have a nice big table for lunch and we can use the sunbeds to relax whenever they are available. But most of the time be sure you will spend in the water.
