From the ferry dock it's an easy walk through the village to the hotel....

My new favorite place on earth. Perfect in every way. Onni and Carmelo along with the entire staff/friends at Mawimbi make your stay as perfect as can be. The beautiful island of Holbox, swimming with whale sharks, the food, the beach, the calm ocean....just amazing. Thank you Mawimbi famili.
