As made legendary by the New York Times Travel writers video of palms blowing in an idyllic setting. Great setting, good food.

Don't miss this hidden gem. The food and the service is outstanding. Francisco and Rubin are standouts. The pasta's are the best on the island and the Ribeye is second to none. You won't be disappointed.

Finding Hotel Mawimbi was a highlight of our trip. Sitting here watching the sea and the palm trees, taking in the view while having breakfast, was so pleasant. The food is good - the best breakfast we found in Holbox. Highly recommend this authentic experience.
