Isla Holbox : Mexico’s kooky Caribbean Island

Why you should get to Mexico’s kooky Caribbean Island as soon as you can…

The tiny island of Holbox (say ‘ol-bosh’, or Mexicans don’t know what you’re talking about), is a short ferry ride off the north coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and a million miles from the glitzy Vegas-style resorts of Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

It’s been billed as “the next Tulum”, that boho-chic strip of Caribbean coast that’s all pale sand, turquoise waters, yoga, fashionistas and hip bars. But it’s not.  See my story at 9Travel.Holbox, Mexico , margaret barca
