We (a couple 40- and 11 year old son) stayed here in july 2011 with the purpose to snorkel with the whalesharks. We traveled from the north of Yucatan to the south of Belize in 2 weeks and started our journey here. It was the most perfect stay of the vacation and even during other holidays my stays haven't been so perfect as it was here. It helps you get in a holiday mood instantly (I have difficulty relaxing; busy job), the food is perfect, the people are lovely and helpful and the rooms are clean and pleasant. Also is Isla Holbox a perfect stay for the end or start of your holiday because everyone is very friendly. Playing basketbal in the centre of the Island, snorkling with the whalesharks is such an incredible experience with these big friendly giants and the animal shelter is also a good place to visit. If you would like a night walk to search for turtles laying eggs in a protected area you can ask for a tour guide here. La Palapa an Isla Holbox couldn't be more perfect. Leave your high heals at home; I walked bare foot everywhere: so nice!!
