The island is a hot spot for people looking for the experience of a lifetime: a swim with the whale sharks who make the area their home for a few months a year. Holbox is also a bird watcher's paradise, with over 100 different species nesting or passing through, including great flocks of flamingos. The hotels are all small and range from rustic palapas where you can hang your hammock to luxury "eco-rustic" boutiques that will take care of your every need. The Gulf of Mexico water is more green than the blues of the Caribbean side of the peninsula, but it is warm and calm, the beach is soft with very few shells or rocks and you can float all day in the gentle surf.
