A slip of land located just north of the Yucatan Peninsula, where the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea meet, Holbox Island is beloved by bird enthusiasts for its population of exotic avian life. But the island is also a hotspot for whale sharks, and kiteboarders love the shallow waters and wide beaches. The white sandy streets are also relatively unspoiled, as most tourists prefer to party it up in nearby Cancun.
The weather in Holbox is always perfect for a vacation getaway, as temperatures allow visitors to escape the cold weather from the rest of the world, and enjoy the summer warmth that is on offer. The climate is tropical – as with any Caribbean paradise – and temperatures average 77°F.
Tropical places are also characterised by spontaneous bursts of rainfall, and this is no different to Holbox. Most rainfall is seen from June through October, with September being the wettest month. And a total of 35 inches of precipitation can fall annually.
The island is a welcome refuge for anyone looking to just get away from it all. Surrounded by alluring azure waters, an indulging Caribbean breeze, and an insatiable climate you simply have to visit Holbox.
