SUP + Yoga Retreat : Holbox Island, Mexico

SUP + Yoga Retreat

Holbox Island, Mexico

Holbox is truly a tropical paradise with super calm waters for SUP Yoga practices and paddling out into the Caribbean Sea. Look no further for an epic SUP + Yoga Retreat offering amazing yoga on both land and sea, deep relaxation, gorgeous accommodations in front of the ocean, built-in travel buddies, and so much more.

Holbox is still a sleepy little fishing village that remains a bit under the mainstream travel radar. Gentle ocean breezes, palm trees swaying above, calm turquoise waters, fresh fish and coconuts all dictate your time on this charming little island. Only golf carts, bikes and your feet get you around from beach to town which makes for the perfect place to really unwind and reconnect with yourself.

We LOVE this little Mexican gem. Please join in on our Holbox SUP + Yoga Retreat to find out what all the fuss is about! We promise you won’t be disappointed!

Travel Tips Guide

SUP + YOGA RETREAT IN HOLBOX TRAVEL TIPS :

Fly into Cancun International airport (CUN).

From Cancun Airport to Chiquila, travel time is approximately 2 hours drive through small villages and open jungle highways.

From Chiquila you take a 20 minute ferry ride over to the island. Ferries run every half hour and tickets can be purchased on the spot at the pier.

Last ferry runs around 8pm. Please check with us for specifics if you need to leave or arrive late at night.

We can arrange the full transfer from airport to villa door for you if you like. Just send along your full flight details and we will try to pair you with others traveling on a similar schedule to the island/airport.

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. You must consult the ADO bus schedule on your own to coordinate the bus trip to Chiquila.

ATMS are sparse on the island and not very reliable. Please plan to take out cash in Mexican pesos at the airport ATM upon arrival or exchange your currency at the airport for Mexican pesos. Some places accept credit cards on the island but it’s always a better idea to have cash for local venues like fish shacks on the beach and trinkets sold by local vendors.

Wifi on the island is not very strong. If you need super reliable internet please let us know to discuss this further. The idea is to unplug and be offline as much as possible. Phone signals are quite good so make sure your local telephone provider works in Mexico or extend your service to include Mexico while you are on retreat. That way friends and family can contact you if necessary and vice versa…we know, old school right?!
