What’s in a name?

A ‘Holboxeño’ is a born and bred local of Holbox, a unique paradisiacal island hidden away in the far corner of the Yucatan Peninsula on the Mayan Riviera. Holbox translates directly into Spanish from Yucatec Maya as Hoyo NegroBlack Hole – and its name is thought to have derived from the shallow lagoon, which in the past was considered to be a fountain of youth.

Why this paradise?

The long stretches of untouched, white, sandy beaches; the bright turquoise-green sea; the colourful village with its streets made of sand; and the absence of city traffic– this very special island offers you a perfect holidaying destination whether travelling on a budget or looking for a luxury get-away.

What can I do while I’m here?

Holbox encompasses everything you could want in a paradise island – relaxation, beauty, colour – without sacrificing the luxury or comforts of larger towns and cities. There is plenty going on for you to explore, day and night. Check our events pages daily to find out what’s on while you are on the island, and take advantage of those special discount deals.

Food and drink for everyone?

Albeit compact and quaint, there is an abundance of food options available to you on the island. Whatever your budget, whatever your tastes, you won’t be disappointed with the range of tasty national and international dishes on offer. Don’t miss out on the delicious hidden eateries around the island; they’re all listed here for your perusal – just check out our food and drinks page and our complete Holbox map for more information.
