Isla Holbox in Mexico

Pristine beaches and turquoise waters promise you the ultimate tropical vacation at picture-postcard-perfect Isla Holbox. Tucked into the Yum Balam Biosphere Reserve on the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, this beautiful island is slightly off the beaten path. Hop into a golf cart or a boat and head for one the many remote spots on this car-free island, where you can walk barefoot in the fine sands or soak up the sun in solitude. A dream come true for nature enthusiasts, the island is home to over 150 species of birds such as flamingos, pelicans, and ibis among others. For an adrenaline rush, try the unique experience of swimming with the whale sharks off the island during the months of June to September. The shallow, clear waters of the island also make it a safe spot to pick up kiteboarding skills. Pass by brightly-painted houses and colorful street art as you make your way to one of the rustic beachfront restaurants to sample authentic local seafood delicacies including the local specialty, fresh lobster.
