Holbox an oasis of peace and tranquility is a part of the Yum Balam Nature Reserve. It is separated from the mainland by the Yalahau Lagoon, which is home to flamingos and pelicans.
Most of the people of Holbox Island make their living fishing. The streets of Holbox Island are made of white sand, common of Caribbean islands, and there are very few cars. Electricity reached the island in 1987, and even now, visitors should expect spotty cell and WiFi signals. Google Maps doesn’t recognize the sandy pathways that function as informal streets.
Holbox is a great destination for street art. Many homes are painted in bright colors, and it’s not unusual for local businesses to hand-paint signs or decor for their restaurants and shops.
