Holbox, one of the world's natural beauties, is located on the northern tip of the Yucatán Peninsula, in the state of Quintana Roo, México and is part of the fauna and flora protection area called "Yum Balam", an ecological reserve. On the east side of the island is Cabo Catoche, and the island separated from the main land by the Laguna YalahauHolbox is 43 Km long and its white sand beaches are decorated with countless shells washed to the shore from the sea. The Hotel Faro Viejo is located on one of the best beaches of Isla Holbox.

Since ancient times, Isla Holbox has been known as a highly beautiful area and was used as a relaxing and resting place by the Maya. In the 16th century, the Spanish found Isla Holbox abandoned, but as many people before them, they were also amazed by its beauty.
