Sunkissed shoulders and salt-toussled hair – the best parts of summer are readily available during a Mexican winter. Our latest hotel tour at Villas Paraiso Del Mar is guided by power couple Nuria Val and Coke Bartrina on the sands of Holbox Island, located in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo on the Yucatán Peninsula’s north coast. With the beautiful Nuria, plus Holbox’s natural amenities, as subject and the talented Coke as photographer, this visual excursion is certain to leave you feeling enchanted by the charming destination. Holbox, meaning “black hole” in Yucatec Maya, is a picturesque haven that lacks a large number of tourists, thus making it the ideal private getaway with your love. Oddly enough, they’re cultivating a growing whale shark watching industry, slowly drawing some attracting to the quaint island. All facts aside, Villas Paraiso Del Mar is a breathtaking ecological hotel – meaning the construction, running, and management has been handled with ethically, with the environment’s wellness in mind.
Located right on the seafront, the hotel boasts 58 different guest rooms placed in bungalows. With either one or two level bungalow styles, the hotel splits up the type of rooms into three different categories – “The Junior Suite,” “The Family Suite,” and “The Master Suite.” Even the smallest option offered is spacious and luxurious.
The room’s amenities are reminiscent of your favorite spa. Long hot baths, lounging in solitude. There is a distinct sense of freedom and peace that exists on the Holbox Island.
The Parasio restaurant offers fresh seafood and typical Mexican dishes. If you book your stay to include a Wednesday evening, you’ll love the “Noche Mexicana” theme – complete with live music that will make you feel truly immersed in a foreign culture.
Opt to rent bikes (or buggys, available directly from the hotel) for a beach-side excursion. It is hard to not feel as if you are apart of seaside royalty as you explore the island, roaming amongst locals, quietly hiding your tourist inclinations and playing chameleon for the weekend.
Surrounded by lush greenery, the abundance of nature is both intoxicating and revitalizing. Walking on small paths between neighboring bungalows, embracing the privacy only a non-tourist destination could offer, one is taken from the stress and anxiety of everyday life – the exact purpose of holiday in a foreign destination.
