About the property

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12), Private, Beachfront

The private Holbox Beachfront Lodge is well known to warm water adventure travelers.

Our guests seek and find an intimate experience at Isla Holbox as the property will definitely give you your own private lodge feeling. The beach and lounge chairs are a few paces from your front door where the warm, shallow, water waits for early morning swims or cooling breaks from the warm Yucatan sun. You will be two blocks from the village square and your beach strolls will be largely alone. The island is truly captivating and has the opportunity to be one of your favorite warm weather getaways. The lodge is perfect for groups that prefer modern accommodations.. The lodge features 5 oceanfront rooms, each with modern tile showers, a safe, 2 comfortable beds and view terrazzo. Wi-Fi is available and an outside shower is available following your swim.

The resident manager can arrange special anniversary events, custom arrivals and adventure activities. Less than complete lodge stays can eat at a number of excellent International and Mexican restaurants. And for less than lodge exclusive groups, a breakfast package is available at a quality neighbor restaurant for $8 per person per day. Kitchen privileges with your own private dining room are included with exclusive lodge stays. The village has a distinctly Italian influence that shows up in many of the restaurants. The dining experience varies from sand floor cantinas to 4 star hotels and everything in between. The island has been a fishing village for as long as anyone can remember and thus the seafood bill of fare, led by local Lobster, is excellent. Luciano will help guide you to the best restaurant choices. Also included are welcome baskets, first day amenities like shampoo, toilet paper and paper towels. Beach type grocery stores are a block away. A refrigerator on the terrazzo is available for your cerveza and sodas, laundry service is available and bedding is provided (bring your own beach towels)

Aside from the primary activity of relaxing on the beach, the main adventures of the island are visits to the Flamingo populations of Bird Island, beachfront massages, Horseback riding on the beach, Kayaking in the lagoon, Parasailing, Tarpon and Snook Fishing, snorkeling with the Whale Sharks and visits to the nearby Mayan Ruins of Chic hen Itza. All of these activities can be pre-arranged by Luciano, along with golf cart rental (the only wheeled vehicles legal on the island). We can arrange for private van service from Cancun or the Cancun Airport. It is also possible to contract for a private plane to bring you directly from the Cancun airport to the island.

The rental rate is $125 per night per room with a minimum 3 nights stay (2 persons per room.) The high season 12/15 through 1/15 is $250 per room per night.

To get to the island you can arrange a taxi or van transfer (approximately $75 per person each way) or rent a car which you can safely park at the end of the road in the ferry town of Chiquila. The ferry ticket is $8 and departs every hour for the interesting 30 minute ride to the island. Upon arriving at the island, take a golf cart taxi ($5--the only wheeled vehicles on the island), for the 5 minute ride to the Holbox lodge. Luciano will be there to greet you.
