Holbox is rich in lush, wild nature and is relatively untouched compared to other tourist destinations on the Riviera Maya. Therefore, it provides visitors with the perfect place to explore either with an organised group or alone, taking advantage of the year-round sun.
There are a number of interesting tours and activities available on the island with experienced companies on hand to organise everything for you. Exhilarating whale shark tours, fishing expeditions, Mexican cooking classes, and much more, there is plenty to keep you busy during your stay. Check out our activities page for all the information you need on everything on offer.
The conditions in Holbox also make this an ideal spot to learn or practise water sports. Want to take out some paddle boards? Fancy getting a view of the island from a kayak? Or even better, would you like to learn how to kiteboard, catching a glimpse of the wonderful beach while you’re skimming through the clear turquoise water? The Kiteschools can help you fulfil your dreams with classes, and there are watersports equipment rentals available on the island, too.
And how about exploring the island by yourself? Bike and golf cart rentals are available, so there is no excuse not to visit the less inhabited parts of this very special island. Just remember, Holbox is a protected area, so please help us keep the fauna and flora safe – no golf carts on the beach or in designated bird-turtle hatching areas.
