Life on the island

 

Life is better on the island / La vida es mejor en la isla

Thanks to its location, Cancun is surrounded by some of the most stunning islands you will find in the Caribbean Sea. These include Isla Contoy and Holbox, popular amongst tourists who seek to be in direct contact with nature.

The beautiful Isla Contoy is located where the Caribbean Sea meets the Gulf of Mexico, about 18 miles south of Isla Mujeres. The island has no inhabitants apart from the wildlife, and it is home to hundreds of different species of fish and types of birds. It is just over 5 miles in length and only 200 visitors are allowed each day in order to cause minimal disturbance to its wildlife.

Holbox is an island located northwest of Cancun. It is a sanctuary to thousands of wild species such as dolphins, pelicans, turtles, flamingos and other exotic birds. Holbox is surrounded by sandy unspoiled beaches, crystal clear waters ideal for windsurfing, snorkeling or sailing and one of a kind experiences like swimming with the famous Domino whale shark or crocodile watching.

Here you can truly enjoy the simple things in life and take time to bond with nature.
