There is a variety of Holbox hotels with budgets for every taste, but Hotel La Palapa by Xperience Hotels is one of the best. Only two short blocks to the plaza, right on the beach with plenty of palms to shade visitors from the heat of the day and a killer Italian restaurant open from early morning through dinner.

The welcome at all Xperience Hotels begins the moment you walk in the door and Hotel La Palapa is no exception. You are offered a nice, cold towel and a cold beverage to refresh after your journey. They both come with a smile.

The rooms are comfortable, the balconies have great chairs and a hammock, and the bathrooms feature local toiletries. Most of the company’s hotels in Playa have huge overhead rainshower shower heads, but La Palapa takes advantage of the wealth of shells on Holbox and uses a large conch-like shell for the shower head. There are no televisions or telephones, but there is free wifi in  the rooms, on the beach and in the restaurant.Read More
