Riviera Maya & Holbox Island Holidays

The beautiful Mayan Riviera runs south along the Caribbean coast from Cancun, past fishing villages and the lively town of Playa del Carmen. The coast is blessed with white sandy beaches and turquoise seas, while offshore lies the world’s second largest coral reef. Relax at an intimate beachside resort property and visit the cliff top ruins of Tulum, snorkel the reefs or search for wildlife by boat in the Sian Ka’an Reserve.

Little Holbox Island lies off the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is separated from the mainland by a shallow lagoon, which is a sanctuary to thousands of flamingoes (April to Oct) and seabirds, while whale sharks (May to September), dolphins and sea turtles are visitors to the surrounding waters. This peaceful and off-the-beaten track destination is home to a small population of fishing families and features sandy streets, colourful houses and beautiful coral sand beaches, strewn with seashells.
