I still have sand between my toes! We just returned tonight from 7 nights at Posada Mawimbi, and I miss it already. This perfect little hotel is located on a little bit of paradise, Isla Holbox. This year we spent 4 nights in Cancun to try one end of the beach scale, and then the 7 nights in Holbox for the other end. A great beach vacation.
Hotel Mawimbi is so laid back I struggled to put shoes on this afternoon. You take your shoes off at Mawimbi, and don't put them on until you put on your flip-flops to walk to a new restaurant in the evening. The staff are wonderful, and everyone works hard to make your stay perfect. The recent long rainy season in Mexico, has had an impact on the beaches in Holbox, and they're working to clear them. The closest roads leading to Holbox have been washed out causing an extra 1 1/2 hours on your transit time from Cancun. This is tedious but the destination is wonderful.
Mawimbi earns it's tripadvisor #1 rating in Isla Holbox. If you haven't been "Go", if you have been "Go Again".
