Swing Slow on This Secret Island Paradise

Isla Holbox, the perfect place to do nothing at all in style. Pinch yourself on arrival, you’re definitely not dreaming. The soft comfort of offshore hammocks awaits you on this slim strip of paradise. Let the breeze sway you to sleep in a cozy cocoon suspended over glassy water. From the Villas Flamingos, you can appreciate these island accessories just outside the comfort of all your beach hotel luxuries.

Fortunately, this secret sanctuary is untouched by mass tourism. Even a savvy traveler could miss the island due to its seclusion from the inner city and the journey it takes to get there. You’re looking at about a two-hour drive from Cancun to a ferry that will carry you the rest of the way. Chances are, you’ve already traveled hundreds of miles to get to Mexico, so what’s a couple more hours?
