Comments Holbox is a very peaceful, pretty, friendly little island located north of Cancun. It has nice beaches, hotels,good restaurants and no cars allowed (the taxis are golf carts).
I only stayed 2 nights and for me there was only 1 reason to go --- to swim with whale sharks. I swam with 1 whale shark who was approx. 20 feet in length 6 different times taking turns with the other 10 guests on board. It was a WOW experience.
Holbox Whale Shark Tours made all my arrangements. They, their staff and their equipment are all very professional and safe.
