If you are searching for a tranquil vacation without the hustle and bustle of the all inclusives, where tourists are few, locals are extremely friendly, food is great, and where you can walk alone for miles on the beach, then Casa Maya on Holbox Island is the place for you. We spent the first two weeks in March 2008 at the Casa Maya (Mayan House). What a wonderful experience! We cannot express how great this place is. And the price is unbelievable at only $60US per night. With the exception of the honeymoon suite, rooms will accomodate 3-4 people. My suggestion is to book through the email address.
Located on the sandy northern beach, and two blocks from downtown, you can watch fishermen leave and return with their daily catch. I purchased fresh fish and then returned to the Casa Maya and cooked a feast. A palapa on the beach with chairs and tables is provided for guests to enjoy relaxing, reading and watching the locals at work and play. A must to see are the fabulous sunsets, the most colourful I have seen in all of my travels.
Senior Lima has provided a very unique boutique hotel on this peaceful and serene island. The hotel is comprised of five bedrooms based and decorated in Mayan style. The yards and outer courtyards are cheerfully decorated and reflect Mayan architecture. A continental breakfast is provided and a kitchen is available for cooking light meals. The living room has a TV, a quiet sitting area, and numerous books on Mayan history.
The service is excellent. All staff were very eager to make our stay as wonderful as possible. Questions were replied in best English and when problems with translation were encountered, they immediately referred to an English/Spanish reference book. The hotel will also arrange any tours you wish to take.
There is something this island and hotel does wonders for the soul. Residing in a very large and very busy metropolis, we wanted a vacation that was restful, peaceful, and physically and mentally rejuvenating, and we found it here….Casa Maya on Holbox Island, Mexico.
