Los Cocos Holbox - Charming Cabana on the Beach

Bedrooms 1
Space sq. ft.
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, kitchen, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Los Cocos Holbox is a charming beachfront cabana for those of us who can't get enough of the beach and who love to experience those soft tropical sunsets.

The cabana was constructed in a grove of coconut trees as a traditional fisherman's cabana with a palapa roof. The cabana was recently restored and updated to provide guests with modern comforts and amenities, while retaining its authentic island feel. The best of both worlds!

When you wake up at Los Cocos Holbox, there's no need to go to the beach. You're already there! Step outside the door and your feet are in the sand. In the morning, you can watch the fishermen bring in the nightly catch as the seabirds wheel and dive. All day long, you can watch the hypnotic every-changing sea. And the evenings are punctuated by those incredible sunsets for which Isla Holbox is renowned.

The cabana is equipped with 2 bicycles and 2 kayakd for your free use. And, of course, you can hang hammocks from the coconut trees in front to enjoy your island home.

The cabana is cozy, comfortable, and suitable for one or two beach-loving adults. Inside, you'll find a bedroom with queen size bed, AC, kitchen, and bathroom. Easing the transition between the house and the paradise outside is a porch/sunroom with ocean views. Finally, there's a magical outside shower with overhanging seagrape trees.

Holbox's central square, where you'll find a variety of restaurants and grocery stores, is a short 5 minute walk from Los Cocos.

If you're interested, we can set up a personal transfer for your party direct from Cancun's airport -- or from anywhere on the Maya Riviera.

Our guests love us, and return!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location and wonderful people. Susana was great to deal with and so helpful. The location is the best and Los Cocos was all that I hoped for. The outside shower was my favorite. We used the bikes everyday. I would love to stay here again but it fills up so quickly. James the property owner was wonderful to work with and very helpful.

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabana, the location and especially the local vibe. Watching the fisherman come in with their catch, birding in the mangroves with the provided kayaks or lounging in the many outdoor seating areas is not to be missed.A really nice and relaxing vacation. Excellent street food and a fabulous outdoor shower. Thanks James and Susana. We will definitely be returning, Mike & Joy Hyman.

Best location yet!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to disconnect, by yourselves, on the sand, with Carribean blue ocean, look no further!! The rest of the reviews tell the story! We were so very lucky to find a week available in November without a lot of planning. We fell in love with the Holbox and Los Cocos. Susana and James were the best. By the time we left, we had our routine down! We rode bikes everywhere everyday, so much fun. From a quick ride in the morning to retrieve a cantaloupe to riding to the resorts down the road for cocktails at sunset with a salsa band on the beach. Our Spanish is so improved after only a week as well! We loved the screened in porch and chairs by the fence rail to just sit and watch the water. Mark felt like a beer one afternoon, he simply walked next door to the hotel mini-restaurant to get one. The Palapa house is so very eco-conscious, you can see the local materials in the construction and charming local decorations make you feel right at home. James doesn't miss a detail, the handmade local soap bearing the Los Cocos label was a treat, especially when used in the outside shower. We loved it, we will return. Thank you James and Susana!

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Truthfully, I am reluctant to give a fantastic review as I would hate for more people to discover this little gem in Mexico. ;-) That said, the house on the beach was truly amazing. It was just what my wife and I wanted; perfect location, great yard on the beach, million dollar sunsets, and interesting little town to explore. We'll definitely return!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 wonderfully peaceful days at this quaint cabana. James was so helpful in arranging our travel from/to Cancun. The travel arrangements went exactly as planned so there was no stress about making it to the airport on time. The cabana was everything I had hoped for, a stone's throw to the beach, quaint, and very cozy.
