Riviera Maya & Isla Holbox, Mexico
Casa Sandra
  • A blend of contemporary and shabby chic decor with elegant furniture and colourful fabrics and artwork

  • Romantic hideway on the unspoilt beaches of Holbox Island

  • 15 simple yet elegant rooms with hammocks to while away an afternoon

  • Nature lovers can kayak through the mangroves and rivers and explore the vast array of bird species

Located to the northwest of Cancun, Holbox Island is just 42 km long. It is separated from the mainland coast by a shallow lagoon, which gives sanctuary to thousands of flamingos, pelicans and other exotic birds and animals. Most of the people on the island make their living from fishing. The streets of Holbox Island are made of white sand, common of Caribbean islands, and there are very few cars. Holbox is considered a virgin tourist destination as very few outsiders visit the island. In spite of the island’s natural beauty, inaccessibility has left it unspoiled by mass tourism, making it the perfect destination for those wanting to get away from it all and be at one with nature.

Casa Sandra is an owner-run rustic boutique hotel set directly on a lovely stretch of beach surrounded by lush plant life, home to colourful birds and exotic fauna. The guest rooms are beautifully designed with many local touches and have wonderful ocean views. The service is highly personalized and there is a fantastic restaurant serving exquisite Cuban and Mexican cuisine.

Enjoy a fabulous sunset, relaxing by the pool, fishing, snorkelling or an unforgettable visit to nearby Passion and Bird islands. Holbox has a very relaxed atmosphere and is well known for being one of the few places in the world where you can snorkel with whale sharks (between May and September).
