We returned last night from our idyllic 5-day getaway to Isla Holbox. I'll post a trip report soon, but a few initial thoughts now ... Villas Paraiso del Mar was lovely, well appointed, good service, beautiful property, spacious rooms. The mosquitoes weren't as bad as we'd expected, just bring repellent and you'll be fine. The whale sharks are amazing, well worth the expenditure. The transfers using Willi were ok. They were waiting for us when we arrived in Cancun, quick ride to a private boat at Chiquila, but on the return, we had to accommodate the schedule of the ferry and other van passengers, so we arrived at the airport quite early, depriving us of an extra hour or so in the paradise of Holbox. Next time, we'll arrange our own transportation, there were plenty of cabs and boats waiting in all locations. Of the restaurants we tried, we liked Los Pelicanos best followed closely by La Parilla de Juan, more on those and others later. As for development on the island, there is plenty of construction and not just near our hotel but down near Flamingoes and on the southwest tip and many places in between. Hard to criticize since the islanders we met welcomed the extra business. Still we hope the special remote feeling doesn't disappear. To all who are headed to Holbox, have a wonderful trip, enjoy!
