Holbox or black hole in yucatec Maya is a small island located on the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula approximately 3.5h north of Cancun. The little island is part of the Yum Balam Biosphere Reserve and has a strict no car policy to protect its amazing ecosystem, but no worries the island is only 41km long and 1.5 km wide. Everything is a bicycle ride away. You can easily spot flamingos, pelicans and whale sharks in the area. The main industry of the island is fishing and it is renowned for its lobster. Yummy!
