ISLA HOLBOX

5 DAY NYE TRIP

DEC 29, 2022 – JAN 2, 2023 

Join us for our annual NYE trip on the small laid-back island of Isla Holbox, Mexico’s best kept secret!

Where the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico meet, Holbox, which means “black hole” in Maya, feels completely off grid (no cars, paved roads, or high rises), yet it still has tons of restaurants and bars. From gastronomic takes on Mexican or international cuisine, to barefoot cafes lining the few blocks that make up downtown offer a mix of tacos and the island’s local specialty, lobster pizza.

We’re excited to ring in the New Year in a beautiful new destination with good vibes.

Every activity is available here from kayaking in bioluminescence, biking, to yoga, to drinking a margarita in a hammock.  So whatever you’re after, Isla Holbox will be a pretty tropical backdrop for the start of your New Year!

Fun Facts About ISLA HOLBOX

Island

Isla Holbox (pronounced HOL-bahsh) is an island approximately 2.5 miles long and 1 mile wide located roughly 40 miles NW of Cancun. It takes around 2.5 hours to reach the island by ferry from the mainland.

Sand Roads

There are no paved roads on Isla Holbox. All roads are sand! Golf carts, motor bikes, and bicycles make up all the transportation on Holbox.

Population

The population of Isla Holbox is around 2,000 people, with many of the island's inhabitants fishing the waters for a livelihood. Its isolation has preserved Isla Holbox as the quintessential "sleepy little fishing village".

Pirates

The island was founded by pirates, over 150 years ago. The pirate ships would go to a nearby lagoon to get fresh water. Some of the pirates decided to stay and marry local Mayan people living in the area. Descendants of the 8 original families still live on Isla Holbox today.
