Holbox Island 🌴 Holbox Island is approximately 40 km long by 1.5 km wide and its main way of transport are still golf cars. There is no pavement on the streets yet and every street is still covered by sand/mud depending if it is sunny or rainy. The taxi fleet is entirely composed by these golf cars and although it may not seem a lot to walk 600 Meters from the ferry docks to the hotel zone you will realize that is very convenient to use them since probably you will be carrying luggage and the heat there is intense, also if it is raining the streets get soaked as there is no drainage system on the island. That being said the walk can become a little uncomfortable specially when you are just getting there and carrying bags. This taxi cars charge around 2 dollars to take you from the docks to the hotel zone and they also offer night rides (20 dollars) to see the bioluminescence at Punta Cocos on the southwest end of the Island. I think these golf cars eventually will be replaced by regular cars as Holbox is becoming modern very fast ( I hope I am wrong) but for the time being I am glad I had the chance to see the Island before it resembles a modern beach resort.
