Accomodations at HM Paraiso del Mar
Sunwing has added Isla Holbox (pronounced "ole-bosh") to its roster of holiday destinations in Mexico. The island lies north of Cancun in Quintana Roo State, between the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.
Part of the Yum Balam Natural Reserve, Isla Holbox offers a much different vacation experience than the resort-rich destinations of Cancun and the Riviera Maya.
Sunwing says that with its white sand beaches and diverse ecosystem, Isla Holbox is a popular island destination for bird watchers, snorkellers and beach lovers alike.
Along with a variety of land and water sports excursions available, travellers in summer months can also opt to join a snorkelling or boat tour to view the annual migration of massive whale sharks that takes place close to the island between the months of June and September.
Sunwing is featuring two ‘quaint’ hotels on the island; the newly-built Villas HM Palapas Del Mar, a small, oceanfront hotel; and Villas HM Paraiso Del Mar, where guests can soak away their worries in the large swimming pool surrounded by lush vegetation.
At both properties complimentary kayaks and bikes are available to enable independent explorations of the island. Windsurfing, kite surfing and fishing are also offered for an additional fee.
The tour operator is also offering twin-centre packages where guests can enjoy a combined stay of four nights on tranquil Isla Holbox, and three nights in Riviera Maya at Reef Coco Beach or the cosmopolitan HM Playa del Carmen resort.
Sunwing is offering 7- or 14-night packages to Isla Holbox from 7 gateways this coming season including: YYZ, YYC, YUL, YQB, YOW and YYT. All Isla Holbox vacations include onward land and ferry transfers from Cancun.
