About Holbox Island
The actually meaning of Holbox is still disputed, even almost 150 years after its founding.
For some, Hol means “hole” and Box means black in reference to a deep cenote that was once found in the middle of the Yalahau Lagoon which separates Holbox from the mainland. Today, this flooded cave has been partially covered when the channel was created or the ferry crossing.
Another story, however, is more sordid and involves the tragic history of the millions of men and women deported from Africa into slavery in the Americas.
You see, Hol can also mean head.
According to legend, a freshwater spring called Yalahau as well, located just across the lagoon on the mainland, was used bu the infamous pirate Francisco de Molas. Here, Pirate Molas set up hs hide out from which he robbed seafaring vessels in search of freshwater. Having so much treasure, Pirate Molas employees the help of a slave to bury the treasure.
Once finished, the mean-spirited pirate included the slave’s head as part of the hidden bounty. Some locals say that the head of the African slave can be seen at night in an attempt to let people know where the yet unfound treasure remains buried.
Things to Do on Holbox
Obviously, you can visit the Yalahau Spring (ojo de agua), although we recommend that rather than treasure-hunting you instead take a dip in the refreshing waters often times called a fountain of youth.
The best thing to do when you make the journey from Cozumel to Holbox Island is more exciting and surprising than you could ever imagine: nothing.
That’s because Holbox is a small island with white sand streets snaking their way in between the colorful houses.
Just a mile west and you have the Yalahaua Lagoon, go east that same mile and you have a stunning strip of beach facing the calm, green turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Sit back, grab a beer, a fresh ceviche, and simply enjoy one of the most beautiful tropical getaways you’ll ever see.
Of course, if you still want to be active and on the move you can rent a bicycle or golf cart, set off in kayak through the mangroves, charter a boat and go fishing or, depending on the season, experience the once-in-a-lifetime wonder of swimming with the largest fish on the entire planet: whale sharks.
