Comments [None]Holbox island is a laid-back , safe place , and Flamingo hotel is a charming ,quiet place at the tip of the isle .
WHALESHARKS in summer - from May till September - are THE topic : after a few hours boat ride , we arrive at their gathering place : around 40-ish of them,15-feet long approximately( and very accustomed to human presence : there were about 30 small boats with snorkelers , no divers allowed

Corals around islets : blanching is a huge problem , whether aroung Holbox or Cancun .
