(travellemming.com).- Just like Tulum used to be years ago… before the crowds came to the sacred place of the Maya, Isla Holbox is still a hidden gem beach destination. Visit to kayak in a bioluminescent bay, snorkel with whale sharks, or just relax on a car-free island.
Isla Holbox is a small island (technically, it’s a sandbar) located north of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. Holbox is getting more popular by the year. But it is still a hidden gem where cars aren’t allowed (only golf carts), and there is plenty of space on the beach.
Holbox is also home to a bioluminescent bay. Taking a night kayaking tour and watching the water literally light up is a special experience.
But Holbox’s main attraction arrives between the months of June to September, when schools of whale sharks arrive to breed nearby. Holbox is one of the best places to visit during these months to see these incredible animals up close on a snorkeling tour. Just book your whale shark tour early, as they can fill up.
