Right now I’m sitting in Cozumel, I have just arrived here, and there is internet in the hostel! Woho! Haha.
I went here directly from Holbox, so I stayed 6 days at Holbox.. and I could have stayed more. I really don’t know where the time goes.
Today I took the ferry from Holbox to Chiquila to go to Cancun. I took it at 13 (80 mxn pesos), the bus to Cancún at 14 (104 mxn pesos), then from Cancún the bus to Playa del Carmen (48 mxn pesos) and then the ferry to Cozumel (156 mxn pesos), arrived around 19.30. The hostel where I’m staying is called Hostelito and is really good here. Very nice and clean!
Yesterday was the last day of the Carnival, and the men dressed up as women and ”danced” and ”sang” haha. So fun. I will upload some videos later.
We ate dinner at the beach, Doña Diosa or something, so expensive and not so good. Don’t recommend that. But there is another place in one corner of the Plaza, with cool green paintings, that’s totally recommendable and affordable. :)
But I can really recommend where to eat breakfast: Juguera La Chaya. It’s close to the beach to casa Maya, and they have breakfast packages that are very affordable, but also a meny, which also is cheap and good! Totally the best place to eat breakfast!
Oh and I’ve seen so many beautiful sunsets in Holbox. That’s why I have so many pictures from it haha.
So I totally recommend to go to Holbox! Do it now before it gets too touristic. Today when I arrived at Playa del Carmen I oooonly heard english here, there are so many americans here! So many people, hotels, deals and stuff… so yes. Holbox will probably not be a calm paradise for so much longer. Sadly.
How to get to Holbox? There are buses from Merida (once a day) and from Cancun (three times a day). You go to Chiquila and take a ferry from there to Holbox.
