Things to do in Holbox, discover the activities available

Surrounded by lush nature and famous for its array of exotic birds and sea life, you’ll never be short of something to do while away on holiday in Holbox. As well as organised boat and kayaking tours, horse-riding and golf-cart/bike rentals, there is always the pull of the extraordinary turquoise-green sea to entertain you on those days you fancy experiencing the more active side of this relaxed island retreat. Holbox is famous for its perfect conditions for learning new water sports, such as kiteboarding, and for the yearly arrival of the whale sharks, which you can spend the day swimming alongside in the crystal clear Caribbean sea.

If it's relaxation you're looking for, head to one of the yoga classes available on the island before treating yourself to a soothing spa treatment or massage. If keeping fit is your thing, then there are also local Zumba and Insanity, or aerobic classes to which visitors are also welcome. Don't miss out on a short visit to the animal shelter; Holbox and its surrounding areas are blessed to have these angels, and then finish the day with a little shopping.

Holbox Island offers its visitors a perfect combination of fun, laid-back, extreme and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
