The Review

Perched on the north coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, separated from the mainland by 10km of shallow blue lagoon, lies Isla Holbox – an unspoilt slice of Caribbean beauty as-yet still untouched by the holiday-making hordes. Part of the Yum-Balam Biosphere Reserve, it is a wonderland of rich flora and fauna where everyone gets around on foot, by bike or on golf carts, with no car engines to break the blissed-out peace.

 

Villas HM Palapas del Mar is a boutique hotel built on the north-western coastline, located right on the shore of its own private beach – which you’ll be itching to sink your toes right away. The hotel is built to seamlessly blend with the beauty of its natural surroundings, created with the expertise of local craftspeople and paying homage to the island’s creative Mexican spirit. Its materials and layout complement the tones of the scenery around, with blues and greens reflecting the richness of sea, sky and verdant foliage.

 

Along with the crystalline waters and white sands of its private beach, Villas HM Palapas del Mar is also home to a beautiful infinity pool and a gleaming on-site restaurant. All-inclusive meals are served up throughout the day, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the unspoilt beauty of this Edenic setting.

 

Isla Holbox has a variety of sights to explore – from whale shark watching during the summer to spotting incredible street art murals around town and eating famous lobster pizza. Head to Punta Mosquito on a rented bike or golf buggy to spot flamingos on the sandbar, or go kitesurfing on the beach before watching the sunset, cocktail in hand, from the deck.
