Yoga Retreat on Holbox Island

Holbox is a small, secluded island just north of Cancun on the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. Long known for it’s breathtaking sunsets and quiet escapes we are taking our retreats back to this island for some R&R and epic yoga.

Join us during summer for the once in a lifetime chance to snorkel with the ‘Gentle Giants of the Sea’, the Tiburon Ballena or keep your feet on land under a palm with a cold coconut in hand. Either way you’ll love your time off grid with us in Holbox!

*This itinerary is subject to adjustments, changes in times, locations, or activities as the retreat leaders and hosts see fit. Any change will be on par with our standards or an upgrade in services or location making for an even more amazing experience for the group and our guests. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and cooperation if any situation were to arise.

*Taxis are not allowed to wait outside the Cancun International airport at arrivals so a transfer needs to be arranged for a private car service pick up or there is a local bus that takes you to Chiquila town where you will find the ferry or private boats waiting to take you to Holbox Island. Please review our FAQ page for full details on travel to the island.

If you would like us to arrange transportation to and from the airport for you please let us know by sending your full flight itinerary and we will send instructions for finding your driver.  We will try our best to pair those arriving at similar times together in an attempt to share the costs or if you need a private ride (at a rate of $XXXusd each way) we are happy make those arrangements.

Please look for the YOGA ADVENTURES WORLDWIDE sign outside your terminal if you plan your transfers with us.

I first encountered Christina and Yoga Adventures Worldwide in October 2015 when I attended the retreat in Morocco.  Leading up the retreat I had a million questions and requests and Christina never hesitated to answer them and assist where she could, always with a friendly and enthusiastic mail (even though I think I must have been driving her crazy).  I had an amazing time in Morocco, Christina planned everything to perfection.  The accommodation was magnificent, the day trips where well thought out and well organised.  And of course the yoga was incredible!  After the retreat I knew I would definitely see her again and now my next adventure with Yoga Adventures Worldwide is in Cuba.  Again Christina has effortlessly assisted with every request, concern and travel arrangements.

I highly recommend booking your next yoga retreat with Yoga Adventures Worldwide and have no doubt that you will find Christina the perfect host.

I loved the time I spent at Zamas with Yoga Adventures Worldwide. Christina, Sofi and Nina were very welcoming and made it a safe space to be in for 5 days. I traveled solo and was slightly nervous and was welcomed by their friendly faces and immediately felt comfortable. The Zamas hotel was also great and the house was clean and in a central location. The town of Tulum has many great restaurants and shops close by. The retreat schedule was perfect allowing time for 2 yoga classes a day and plenty of free time to do other activities. I highly recommend a retreat with Yoga Adventures and hope to try another retreat location in the future!

My yoga retreat in Tulum was incredible. Such an enlightening fun & soulful experience that its going back on my bucket list. The group of woman running it, from the yoga teachers, Pepper and Nina to the coordinators/admins, Sophi to the owner, Christina are beautiful people who helped make the experience as awesome as it was. Pepper Monroe was our Yoga instructor- a special gift for us as she is such a bright light, sweet skilled and fun! The excursions were wild and intense (in a good way) , well organized, the food was very yummy and the practice & schedule was prefect. Compared to other retreats this was affordable. Highly recommend this yoga retreat, no matter what destination!
