Get off the beaten path and experience an unspoilt and utterly captivating part of Mexico. Isla Holbox is one of the very few uncrowded and undiscovered tropical paradises that hasn’t become a victim of its own fame. Here, the miles of white sugary beaches stretch for as far as the eyes can see and the crystalline-clear waters are undisturbed by mass tourism.
A 25-minute boat ride from the Chiquila (north of Cancun) across a shallow lagoon will take you to beautiful and virgin Isla Holbox, which remains a part of the Yum-Balam Biosphere Reserve. This relatively small island has just a few beachfront accommodations and Hotel Zomay (formerly known as Los Mapaches) is the most charming one. The rooms here are actually cozy and cool wooden bungalows (or cottages) that make the entire place look like a small Caribbean village.
Each of the six bungalows is different, but all feature a small well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, ceiling fan, an airy bathroom and, in most cases, a private porch with a personal hammock for relaxation.
The bungalows are completely independent of each other, giving you the possibility to enjoy absolute privacy or socialize with your next door neighbors, when you feel like it. Please see more details about each of the cottages in the Amenities section.
Privacy and personal attention are what make Hotel Zomay unique. The staff is very helpful and authentically friendly, yet never obtrusive. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you’ll make yourself feel at home here, as if you have been coming here for years.
It will feel natural to relax, watching the flamingos and tropical birds from your hammock, grilling the fish you caught in the morning, or enjoying a chilled cerveza with your toes buried in the soft, white sands.
Shoes forgotten in your suitcase, you’ll get in tune with the laid-back seaside rhythm of life. Sleep, sunbathe, swim, eat mouth-watering Mexican dishes, explore the mangrove kayaking and take a slow stroll to Isla Holbox’s city center. Oh, and don’t forget about snorkeling with huge whale sharks that grace the warm Caribbean waters from June to September. It’s truly a life-time adventure and there is no better place to experience it than Quintana Roo’s Isla Holbox and Hotel Zomay!
Just make sure that you book your stay in advance, because with only 4 beachside bungalows, 2 lovely apartments, and hundreds of people looking for a relaxing Caribbean vacation, you must act fast!
