PENINSULA YUCATAN

 

>> Holbox

 

Holbox (“black hole” in Mayan) is an island in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, located on the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is approximately 12 kilometers long and 1.5 kilometers wide, and separated from the mainland by a shallow lagoon that is home to flamingos, pelicans and other birdlife. Not yet heavily touristic, the island’s main industry is fishing. However, the island is developing a growing tourist industry in the form of whale shark viewing. On Holbox the key word is relaxation. The exceptionally wide, sandy beaches are ideal for ambling. The water is warm, shallow, relatively clear and emerald green, without the dangerous undertows and large waves. Other pleasures are of the laid back variety as well-paddle boating and kayaking, strolling around the village or just lazing the afternoon away in a hammock. A daily ritual is sunset watching from the beach or the main pier in town, a view that takes in fishing boats silhouetted against the sky. A more adrenaline-fueled activity is the relatively new sport of kite surfing. The most notable attraction Holbox offers is the opportunity to get up close and personal with whale sharks. These sharks are a filter feeder. It pumps sea water through five large pairs of gills that act as sieves, trapping plankton, algae, krill, small vertebrates and other food that are then swallowed. With a regional airline it is possible to arrange private flights from Cancun, Cozumel and Playa del Carmen to the small airstrip on Isla Holbox.
