Full description

Cruise to Holbox Island on this day trip with hotel pickup from select Riviera Maya locations. Uncover the rich biodiversity of the Yum Balam Nature Reserve on a boat tour with a local fisherman. Visit Isla Pasion and search for local wildlife, and enjoy a meal at a local restaurant. 

Be picked up from the comfort of your accommodation in Riviera Maya. Take in the views on the transfer in an air-conditioned van. Arrive at the port of Chiquila and board a private boat with a local fisherman. 

Navigate through the Yum Balam Nature Reserve where over 300 different species of birds live freely. Look for whitehead eagles, cormorants, flamingos, and ducks as you cross a lagoon to Isla Pasion. Hop aboard a golf cart and travel to Punta Cocos beach. 

Head to the main harbor on Holbox island and enjoy a mini tour. Fill up with some mouth-watering local fare at a restaurant. Sip on a soft drink or water with your meal. Have some free time to explore the fishing village or chill out at the beach before returning to your accommodation.

Highly recommended! First stop on beautiful island 2 stop Punto mosquito. And then Holhox had a nice meal. Water soda beer and tequila on board. 2 hours of free time on the island and then back. There was even an option to take a bike which is included. For a buggy pay 350 pesos for an hour.

It was absolutely great! Our tour guide also created a good atmosphere, helped us all take photos and we spent a lot of great moments together with a group! Holbox itself is also a cute place to stroll around, see a lot and meet friendly locals! Always happy ! But the best part was swimming in the sea!!

Our guide Gennaro was the best guide for this tour with his pleasant and humorous manner. He gave us a lot of impulses what we can do in Holbox during our free time. Before that we drove to different spots with a boat and had a good lunch. gladly again !
