I can’t rate this experience highly enough! I contacted VIP Holbox 3 weeks in advance of visiting and asking if they could help me with a surprise proposal. They were more than accommodating, our guide Eddie almost had me believing we were going fishing for the day. Eddie deserved an Oscar - as the engine stopped working as we were approaching ‘mosquito island.’ He said it would be 15mins for a new bait would arrive and for us to enjoy the island while we wait. As we got off the boat and stepped onto the island, I got on one knee and Eddie was there with his camera to capture the special moment! Really, really well organized. VIP Holbox went above and beyond, more so than they needed to and we will forever remember a special day thanks to all involved. P.s we did the day fishing tour the next day, which was arguably better. Don’t tell my fiancé Stephen & Anemick

Such a great experience with VIP - we booked a private fishing trip. It’s was not expensive at all and it was a wonderful experience. Gustavo and our captain were great, they made it so fun, laid back and we caught a ton of fish (by we I mean the royal we, not me). We were out in the boat for a few hours, and then back to the beach for fresh ceviche made from our catches by Gustavo and it was the best ceviche we’ve ever had. The romance of the catch coupled with the excellent preparation and the scenery. They also picked us up from our hotel and dropped us back (we could have walked but when on holiday....) Definitely recommend!

The kayak tour was an amazing experience. The guide was knowledgeable and very easy-going, allowing us to take the trip at our own pace and suggested several possible routes depending on our interests. The island itself with all of its wildlife is nothing short of incredible. We saw so many birds, a crocodile, manta rays, and even an octopus. This experience is worth every penny!
