At the far north end of the
Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico lies Isla Holbox, a
sleepy, largely untouristed island paradise that
is known primarily for its tours to see large
concentrations of whale sharks. Part of
the Yum Balam Biosphere nature preserve, Isla
Holbox is home to an amazing array of nature,
including pelicans, manta rays and huge flocks
of pink flamingos.
Our tour from Playa del
Carmen begins with a stop at Solferino, the
oldest Mayan village in the northern Yucatan,
where we will enjoy a light breakfast. We
will visit the Yum Balam orquidean site where we
will see holy Ceiba trees a thousand years old.
At Chiquila, we will board boats and head for
beautiful Yalahau lagoon, home to huge flocks of
tropical birds including pink flamingos, and
even wild dolphins!
We will visit aptly named
Morena Island (Bird Island), home to over 140
species of tropical birds, including ibis,
flamingos, pelicans, spoonbills and more.
At about noon, we will arrive at Isla Holbox's
north beach. We will have lunch at a
beachside hotel, where you can relax on the
beach and use the facilities, or if you prefer
you can take a golf cart to tour the island.
