The island of Holbox in Mexico is the beach destination of your dreams. Don’t believe me? These Isla Holbox photos will have you hooked!
Ok, first things first, I absolutely LOVED Holbox in Mexico. From reading blogs and googling Isla Holbox photos, I had a feeling I would. A few hours north-west of Cancun, it attracts a chilled-out crowd of backpackers and holidaymakers, who are happy mooching around in ripped jeans shorts and flip-flops. The biggest decision comes at meal times, and is usually about what topping to have on your tacos.
One of the big appeals for me was how COLOURFUL it was. I’m not just talking about the vibrant colours of white sand and turquoise ocean. Nope, I’m talking about street art. Murals. Everywhere! Holbox has bags of personality, and a lot of it comes from the artistic creations scattered across the island. From the huge design on the stage on the island’s main square, to portraits, crocodiles, flamingos and more, this may be a small island, but there’s still plenty to see!
If you haven’t seen it yet, I put together a huge travel guide to Isla Holbox with everything you need to know, including how to get there, what to do on the island, and tips for visiting
But for now, time to share some of my favourite photos of Isla Holbox.
I’ll give you a fiver if you reach the end and don’t want to visit.*
