Isla Holbox has all the “private island feels” and is absolutely breathtaking! It is a tropical paradise torn straight from the pages of a storybook with white sand beaches that extend as far as the eye can see, azure waters, swaying coconut palms….and there are no cars on this island! Isla Holbox has sandy streets, colorful Caribbean buildings, and the only way to get around is either by foot or by golf cart. The hotels here are a collection of 2 story thatched-roof bungalows scattered along the beach. The downtown area offers many great local restaurants and bars to enjoy, again the streets are beach sand, so you can go everywhere barefoot! The Wall Street Journal calls Holbox “a rare find: an under-the-radar getaway” and it sure is! Best part is it is only a few hours drive + ferry ride from Cancun yet it feels like you are on a remote island in the middle of n o w h e r e. Come to relax, unwind and get away from it all and experience all that Isla Holbox has to offer. Enjoy SUP Yoga, Yoga and Paddleboarding daily as well as a 3 Island Boat Tour of the surrounding islands. I guarantee you will want to return to Holbox again and again…. this place is pure magic!

Tour Location


  • I just returned from my SUP Yo trip to Isla Holbox. I’m still basking in the glow. What a great combination of relaxation and activity. This was not the usual SUP Yo adventure (as it was more laid back) but it was just as great in it’s own way. If you are looking for a trip seek out one led by the fabulous crew of SUP YO!

  • SUP YO did a fantastic job at planning and organizing a fun adventurous trip. There was nothing to do but show up and join in the festivities.

  • I had the best time in Holbox, Mexico at the Villas Flamingos with SUP YO Adventures. The trip was easy from the moment I stepped off the plane in Cancun, where SUP YO had private transportation waiting to take our group to our beautiful hotel. I went on this trip to kick-off my 50th birthday celebration with friends. It was fun, adventurous, relaxing and memorable! SUP YO coordinated all of the activities and did a great job to ensure that every part of this vacation was enjoyable for all.
