Isla Holbox is a very rustic, mellow Mexican community and Hotel Mawimbi keeps it low-key and natural. Beautiful setting, funky but tasteful artisan design. Very good food and drinks. Very quiet, peaceful island...Very calm waters good for kids. Mosquitos on the island are present in am and pm so bring lotion. If you are a big chain hotel type then this is not the place for you. This is off-grid island life as it should be. Staff was very accommodating when we had to change travel plans!
Note: we went to Holbox for the whale sharks but bad weather closed the port, postponing tours for several days...so watch the weather.
