Here is an overview of the different ways to get from Cancun to Holbox:
- Ferry: The most popular way to get to Holbox from Cancun is by taking a ferry. The ferry ride takes about 30 minutes and departs daily from Chiquila port. You can purchase your tickets in advance or on the day of the trip. Once you arrive at the port of Holbox, you can take a taxi, bike or walk to your hotel.
- Private ATV Taxi: If you want to take a more adventurous route, you can take an ATV taxi from Chiquila to Holbox. This option will take you about 20 minutes, you will be able to see the beautiful landscapes, and the driver will be the one that will take you to the hotel.
- Bike Rental: Another option is to rent a bike in Chiquila and ride it to Holbox. This option will take you around 3 rental hours and it’s a good way to enjoy the nature and the beautiful landscapes.
Whichever option you choose, it’s important to note that once you are on the island, the best way to move around is by bike or golf cart, as cars are not allowed on the island.
I recommend that you check the schedule and prices of the ferry or ATV taxi in advance and book them before your trip, also, if you plan to rent a bike, check in advance the availability and rental conditions.
Also, it’s important to consider that the trip from Cancun to Holbox can be affected by the weather conditions and the sea state, so always check the updates before you travel.
