A change to the live on the beach offers various excursions:
- Isla Pajaros (bird island)
- Yalahau (sweet water source)
- Boca Iglesia (ruins)
and many more attractive day trips from Cancun to the various Maya - ruins (with local guides), or direct from Holbox (self managed).
On this bird island live Flamingos, Pelikans, Fregatbirds, Reiher, Cormorans and other exotic kinds of birds. You can watch the birds from close distance.
The sweet water source gives a welcome change on hot days. After a short trip in a fisher boat you reach the idyllic Zenote, which can only be accessed by sea. The fresh and prickling clear source water gives a refreshment.
