Our honest advices and recommendation about Holbox:

Money : Get cash before
There are only 2 ATMs on the island and they are often out of order especially during high season and weekends. Cards are accepted to most places WHEN the internet is working, so better be prepared and get enough cash out before coming. You can also change USD or EUR on the island.

Weather : dont believe Google
Holbox has mostly 2 seasons:
- the dry season . From February to June the weather is generally hot and there is few rain.

- the rainy season : according to google, it is raining everyday in the year . The reality: the weather is hard to predict and changing quickly. It might be raining on one side of the island and not on the other.

Usually, mornings are sunny and in the afternoon you might get a free shower that doesn't last long. Holbox doesn't have paved roads but only sand, so the street might get muddy... and the mosquitos might eat you alive. You can buy repellent on the island.

Internet/Phone :
The phone and internet coverage is really bad in Holbox in many places. The phone networks working on the island are AT&T and Telcel. You can buy chip and refill your credit on the island.
3G is working on the island but there are often cuts.

    I loved my stay in Barco Verde !Gracias ! Staff was super nice and make me feel like a family. I join the pizza night and one of the best (free) activity they offer was to go see the bioluminescence with the whole group at night

    Great location, big spacious rooms that were clean and airy. Ac at night, as well as fans. It's the staff and the volunteers here who really make it great, they all friendly and very helpful. Only minor thing you're not allowed use the kitchen. All in all I really enjoyed my stay her and would stay again.

    Cool hostel with hammocks to chill, rooms have quite and nice airconditioning. The hosts were really nice, but it seemed like it was a gathering place for all the spanish-speaking workers from the block who hang out at the hostel and they weren't really open to meet new people, so sometimes we felt kind of odd and not welcomed in the common area. Part of the reason was probably that we weren't fluent in spanish. Also we were missing to use the kitchen, which was there and not beeing used a lot.

    Staff are so friendly. Room was perfect. Chilled vibes and not that many people socialising with us whilst we were there. We like to cook and weren’t able to do that at this hostel. Overall nice hostel in a great location

    A friendly staff and a really good and healthy breakfast (but not included). The common room is nicely arranged and they offer a lot of tours and activities during the week. Unfortunately, my mattress was way too soft so it hurt my back and the towel is not included (50p). It's a bit expensive but so is Isla Holbox in general...

    Barco Verde was great for a night. We had the whole dorm to ourselves which gave us a lot of space. The staff clearly enjoyed working there. Was a little disappointing that none of the activities were running as the volunteer had left.

    It is a great location and the rooms are nice and clean with air con. It is much cheaper than the other hostels which is why we moved here but we ended up going back to Che to socialise. The staff all just sit around and you feel like you are interupting their staff night out when you ask for anything. It is good if you want to just chill but not if you want to make friends and party.

    The aircon didn’t work, everyone was up the whole night because it was boiling hot in the room. As I went to the staff in the morning the guy lied to us by saying they hab problems with the electricity which was bullshit as I charged my phone the whole night and turned on the light. The matresses were awful. I had a serious back pain in the morning. No one was willing to help us or make our stay comfier.
