At about 43 kilometers east Holbox is located cabo Catoche which is the point where the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico are met. In this area you can see incredible scenery with pristine beaches. For its lush marine life is the ideal place for fishing and snorkeling.
Dolphins: The Outer Cape Catoche crossed an area where there are likely to see dolphins. Fishing: North of Cabo Catoche where we caught a few fish of moderate size, just enough to prepare the ceviche. Snorkeling: The area of Cuevones is about 2 feet deep. There you can see all kinds of fish and soft corals. Under stones nurse sharks lurk background and sometimes you can see hawksbill, octopus and lobsters. Beach and mangroves: We went on the virgin beach to stroll, eat ceviche and collect shells. If the tide is high, we went trough a mangrove Holbox to return to the other side of the island.
Bio-luminescence in Holbox is a phenomenon that occurs in the southern beaches of the island and can be observed when there is no moonlight at night. It is a spectacular phenomenon where the waters of the seashore are illuminated by certain micro-organisms that light up when they hit the waves.
The light is usually so bright that even the fish can be seen in the water.
There are thousands of luminous points that shine, which are bio-luminescent plankton, tiny organisms that like fireflies emit their own blue light.
This phenomenon usually happens from July to January and we offer a 1-hour tour for those who want to come and admire this fantastic natural spectacle.
