By plane: Holbox Island has a small airport where you can land by private plane, or a rented one. The approximated time from Cancun is 30 minutes.
By boat: The usual way to arrive to the island is by boat from Chiquila. There is a regular-line boat that crosses the 12 kilometers separating Chiquila and Holbox (it takes between 15 and 20 minutes). Chiquila is two and a half hours driving from Cancun and about four hours from Merida
Like the rest of the Caribbean islands, the sun is always shining over Holbox. With an average temperature of 27ºC, the sea breeze makes the life different from the rest of the world. The raining season is from September to November, and the windy season from December to February. The rest of the year, the sun heats more than usual, so you have to take some precautions.

Xaloc Resort has nine rooms, every one is a round "palapa" with the traditional 7m. high-palm tree roof.
Every room is built in the interior of a palapa, the most common way of building in this area, using hard woods and palm tree roofs. At Xaloc, this ecological construction is very well combined with the colorful Mexican style and comfort. In your room, you will sleep under a mosquito net, and you will experience the traditional hammocks on the exterior porches. You can choose a room with king-size bed or a room with two twin beds. The palapa is the traditional construction in Mexico and Holbox. The original construction was very simple: trunks of palm trees for the walls and the leaves for the roofs. These "cabañas" were built close to the beaches to protect from the sun. Little by little, Caribbean hotels have integrated this type of construction in the local arquitecture. This kind of construction is also very appropriated for the warm climat of this area
At the restaurant Majá che, our chef
will delight your taste with exquisite Mexican and Yucatecan dishes. Holbox is a
fishermen village, that is why the fish and the lobster are one of the best
options you can try here. It is a pleasure to watch the arrival of the fishermen
with their boats full of fresh fish, which is coming direct to the restaurant to
be served to you.
Holbox appears in the heart of Mayan culture, protecting its remains, and converting them to the one of the most impressive paradises in the Caribbean. Pirates´ refugee, shark-hunters island and nowadays a quiet fishermen´s village, begins today to timidly face the tourism. Holbox is located in the Area Natural Protegida de Yum-Balam, the perfect place to observe the nature living by its own rules, watching the human presence which does not intervene in its process
