Hotel Mawimbi is a one of a kind gem, carefully tucked away on the white-sand Caribbean island – Isla Holbox. Isla Holbox, located to the northwest of Cancun, in the state of Quintana Roo, could just as well be in another universe, where time goes slower and happy memories last much longer.
The owners of the charming 11-room Hotel Mawimbi, Carmelo and Ornella, roamed the world in search of the perfect place to settle down. When they first saw Isla Holbox, they immediately fell in love with this little paradise. You can feel this love in every little detail of their great masterpiece – Hotel Mawimbi.
The winner of the Travelers’ Choice® 2013 award by Trip Advisor users, Hotel Mawimbi consists of 2 lovely bungalows and 9 air-conditioned hotel rooms. The bungalows feature a well-equipped kitchenette, a separate bedroom with a private bathroom and such amenities as a safe, AC and ceiling fans.
The hotel rooms range from standard rooms to elevated-view rooms with balconies, to the more luxurious ocean-front suites. Each of the rooms is beautifully decorated. The bedclothes and pillow are made from antique Guatemalan ponchos. The bathrooms are finished with brightly-colored Mexican tiles. The tables are hand-carved from smooth local tree trunks.
Outdoors, the palapa-roof beach bar, soft swing beds and cozy hammocks provide a relaxing hideaway, steps away from the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. You won’t find a more ideal place to unwind, recharge your body and replenish your soul.
Just two blocks down from the Hotel Mawimbi is located the calm city center. And you won’t even have to put your shoes on to get there! All the streets on Isla Holbox are made out of pressed sugary sand that is great to walk on. However, long barefoot walks and hours of swimming are not the only activities you can look forward to.
Isla Holbox and Hotel Mawimbi are famous for two things: kitesurfing and whale shark tours. The clear, plankton-rich waters of the Caribbean next to Isla Holbox attract large, yet harmless whale sharks between the months of June and September.
About a decade ago the owners of Hotel Mawimbi started organizing the first whale shark snorkeling tours and they still offer this unbeatable experience.
So if you are more of an adventurer who likes off the beaten path destinations, and prefers the unspoilt natural beauty of the Caribbean over the crowded beaches of Cancun, then you will absolutely love Isla Holbox and the Hotel Mawimbi.
Just HURRY to book your stay here, because with the hotel’s high rankings on Trip Advisor and excited travelers’ reviews, reservations fill up faster than you can say “Una mas mango margarita, por favor!”
