HolboxPink flamingos and white sand on a paradise island.
Holbox, the tiny island off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, is a tropical paradise of white sands, turquoise waters and swaying palms. With its laid-back vibes, Holbox is the perfect destination to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Venture out on a boat tour to spot sea turtles, flamingos and dolphins, or take a dip in the protected mangroves. Dine on fresh seafood at the beachfront restaurants and explore the island’s winding streets. From horseback riding and kite surfing to kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, there are plenty of activities to enjoy. The island’s star attraction, however, is whale shark season, when the gentle giants come to feed off the coast.
