Planning an escape to paradise this winter? Look no further than Holbox, everyone’s favorite little island off of Mexico’s Gulf Coast. Plan your trip here with these top 5 hotels to stay at in Holbox for your next trip.

Holbox Island: Introduction For Travelers

Idyllic Isla Holbox has been making more of a name for itself in the international travel sphere in recent months, and frankly, we aren’t surprised at all. Located just a few hours north of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, a ferry ride to Holbox means taking a step back to simpler times. There are no big chain hotels to be found here; instead, you’ll find lots of beauty and a laid-back island scene like no other in Mexico.

For those travelers looking for something a little different in the Mexican Caribbean, Holbox offers the perfect alternative to the fast-paced travel scene of Cancun. Don’t expect all the amenities of the Cancun Hotel Zone here in Holbox, as the island doesn’t have any fancy all-inclusive resorts. However, a number of boutique hotels do have an all-inclusive option listed, and we will be highlighting some of those in this list of top hotels to stay at on Holbox island.
