Holbox is a beautiful island located on the opposite side of the Yucatan Peninsula. Set in the green turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Holbox is a charming town of colorful houses and white sand streets. With bicycles and golf carts as the main mode of transportation, this is the place to go and enjoy a truly tropical island experience.
Our Holbox charter planes depart from the Playa del Carmen airport for a short 30-minute ride over to the island.
Along the way, you´ll have the opportunity to take in the breathtaking views of both the Caribbean Sea and the stunning island of Holbox during one great tropical day trip!

Things to Do in Holbox
Holbox Island provides visitors with numerous activities for nature and beach lovers.
First and foremost, Holbox is a place to kick back, relax, and take in the cool island vibes.
You´ll definitely want to consider renting a bicycle or golf cart so that you can head out and discover the beauty of Holbox.
There are also numerous tours available such as fishing, kayaking through the mangroves, snorkeling in Cabo Catoche, and experiencing the Classic Tour which takes you to visit a beautiful freshwater spring. If you’re lucky, you may even see a few flamingos and even dolphins.
The highlight of Holbox excursions takes place, however, from June through the middle of September, when the largest fish on the planet —whale sharks— visit the waters off the coast of Holbox to feed on plankton.
Don’t miss the opportunity to swim next to these gentle ocean giants!
For such a tiny island of just over 4,000 inhabitants, Holbox has an amazing culinary offer that you’ll never be able to explore in just one visit.
From great ceviches on the beach to fine dining in the center of town, Holbox restaurants have something for everyone.
Prices here are similar to those of downtown Cozumel or 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen, so be prepared to spend a little more to satisfy that sudden hunger for some lobster pizza.
However, if you are looking for more budget-friendly options, you´ll find plenty of those too.
Much like the island’s food scene, Holbox hotels have something to offer for all tastes and budgets.
From upscale chic to back to the roots camping, you won’t have too hard of time finding the right accommodations for you.
Availability, however, can be another matter, especially during high season.
Our favorite hotels on the island include Hotel Mawimbi, Villas Flamingos, and Casa Sandra.
Holbox Charter from Playa del Carmen
The Holbox from Playa del Carmen charter is a round-trip flight between the two tropical destinations.
Along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to take in some stunning views of the land and seascapes of the Yucatan Peninsula.
Round-trip transportation just 30 minutes to and 30 minutes back in modern Cessna airplanes as well.
Other than that, you’ll be on your own to discover the magical island of Holbox.
In fact, you´ll have about six hours to go on a tour, rent a golf cart or bicycle, walk around the town or, our favorite, simply hang out at a beach bar with a cold beer and some fresh ceviche while you absorb the charming island vibes of Holbox.
However, if you would like for us to arrange a tour, boat charter or anything else, just remember that your wish is our command.
