Hotel at a Glance: Holbox Dream

The 26-mile-long sliver-shaped Isla Holbox sits in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, not far from Cancun. Though getting there requires some effort, the reward is worth it: the island is protected as a part of the Yum Balam Ecological Reserve, meaning its beaches are pristine and its waters crystal-clear. The Caribbean-inspired Holbox Dream hotel is located just five minutes from the island's commercial center.

Holbox Island, Mexico: Secluded Island with Sandy Beaches, Snorkeling, and Wildlife

Holbox Island (pronounced "hohl-bosh") is a secluded strip of land off the northern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. It’s separated from the mainland and Cancun by a shallow lagoon. Thanks to its tucked away location, the area is largely unspoiled by tourism—there are very few cars and the streets are made of white sand. Frommer's praises Holbox’s “dreamy, old-fashioned feel.”

The island is a part of the Yum Balam Ecological Reserve, so it supports a wide variety of wildlife, including dolphins, turtles, pelicans, and pink flamingos. From May to September, you can arrange a tour to snorkel with whale sharks, the largest fish on earth.
