Hotel La Palapa

Isla Holbox, Isla Holbox, Mexico


  • Dream-Vacation Beach Hotel on Isla Holbox 

    To most travelers who head to Riviera Maya the word ‘palapa’ is associated with one thing – vacation. The thatched palapa roofs are found all over the Yucatan Peninsula, covering bungalows, beach umbrellas, bars, restaurants and even ethno-chic hotels. And La Palapa Hotel is great proof of this.

    Nestled on the sugary white sands of the secluded Isla Holbox beach, La Palapa truly brings together the essence of a laid-back, relaxing, yet memorable beach vacation. Here, the turquoise waters of the Caribbean are calm and clear. Slender palm trees grow right out of the white sand, providing cool shade from the warm Caribbean sun. And palapa-roofed hotels fit perfectly into the tropical paradise landscape.

    Offering 15 spacious rooms just a few steps away from the sea, Hotel la Palapa makes it really easy to unwind, disconnect and fall under the spell of breathtaking views and awe-inspiring Caribbean sunsets.

    Beachfront rooms in a variety of styles and prices

    Eco Studio rooms are the most budget-friendly, featuring a queen-size, air-conditioned bedroom, a private bathroom and a small kitchenette. Armonia rooms are furnished with one or two double beds and, in addition to superior organic amenities, offer a private patio or a terrace with a great sea view.

    The two Cielito Lindo rooms stand out for their jaw-dropping ocean view, highlighted by expansive panoramic windows, and a private terrace that is great for relaxing with a good book and enjoying the peace and quiet.

    The Bungalows represent an authentic two-level Caribbean house with its typical palapa thatched roof, cozy kitchenette, a queen-sized bedroom and a private outside patio, furnished with a hammock for sweet siestas. All of the Hotel La Palapa rooms come with private bathroom and typical seashell shower head (see more room details in the Amenities section below).

    Things to do at the hotel and on Isla Holbox

    The premises of the Hotel La Palapa also include a Holistic Space (dedicated to relaxing massages, yoga sessions and holistic therapies) and Casa Nostra beach restaurant. It is really hard not to gain a few pounds with a large variety of mouth-watering dishes and snacks, served at Casa Nostra restaurant. What’s the solution? Fill your days with fun beach activities!

    For example, if you are planning your trip to Isla Holbox anytime from June through September, include a snorkeling tour with whale sharks to your must-do activities list. It is a magical experience that you are guaranteed to remember for years to come!

    But before you do that, make sure that you book La Palapa Hotel! This tropical paradise has been getting increasingly popular amongst travelers, looking to get away from the busyness and city crowds.
