Our honest advices and recommendation about Holbox:

Money : Get cash before coming on the island
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 internet is working, so better be prepared before coming. You can also change USD or EUR on the island.

Weather : don't 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 flodded and muddy... and the mosquitos might eat you alive. You can buy repellent on the island.

Internet/Phone :
The phone and internet coverage is generally bad in Holbox compared to cities like Cancun or Tulum. The only 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.

A smaller hostel, but great a great time if you’re not one for big parties, lots of other solo travellers. Jen was very lovely and friendly and incredibly helpful. Location is fantastic just off the main squares and < 100m away from the beach.
