The Yucatan is famous for its many historical sites but also as a beautiful destination for a well-deserved vacation.

From there you can travel Southwards through Quintana Roo along the Yucatan coastline or travel upwards to Chiquila where you can take the ferry to the amazing Island of Isla Holbox. If you travel directly to Chiquila make sure to bring cash, because ATMs are more offline than online. In Chiquila there aren't too many ATMs which can be the same on Isla Holbox.

Isla Holbox is a beautiful tropical island with miles of snow-white beaches, lots of colorful street art, and a very chill atmosphere, music, bars, and restaurants are everywhere to be found on this majestic Island.
