Holbox Island, off the Yucatan peninsula coast, is 8km long and 4km wide close to the point where the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea meet. There are no cars on the island, which is reached by a 20`ferry ride from the mainland. Transportation is by golf carts, bicycles or walking.
The Hotel de las Nubes is at the furthest end of the island next to the mangle reserve. It's a small boutique establishment with bungalows facing the sea and 2 two-story buildings a few meters behind the two pools.
The food is excellent, with freshly-baked bread and pastries and a varies menu of seafood, meat and past dishes. The restaurant is on a raised terrace overlooking the sea. Service is good, although a bit slow when the hotel's two dozen rooms are fully occupied. Holbox often has flooded sand roads that make walking difficult. The town is a 20`walk from the hotel and has a good variety of restaurants and small shops.
The single drawback of the hotel is that due to its location next to the mangles, an invasion of small flies and mosquitos arrives in the late afternoon until sunset so bring lots and lots of bug repellant.
All in all a the most recommendable place to stay on the island.
