Full description
Explore Holbox Island (Isla Holbox) and its neighboring islands of Isla Pájaros and Isla Pasión on this full-day tour from Tulum. Tour the protected area with a guide to see wildlife, marine life, and migratory birds like flamingos, pelicans, and other exotic creatures. Visit Isla Pájaros (Bird Island), a small islet in the Yalahau Lagoon. It is a refuge for a great diversity of birds in certain seasons. Being a protected area, access on foot is not allowed, so observe this magical place from a viewpoint. Next, see Cenote Yalahau, an eye of water surrounded by mangroves and lush vegetation. Admire a panoramic view from the top of a viewpoint. Swim in its crystal-clear waters. According to legend, its waters have healing properties, which is why it is known as the "source of eternal youth." Continue to Isla Pasión (Passion Island) to relax and enjoy the sun and the sea. Be in close contact with nature. Later, have some food at a local restaurant, with free time to get to know the town by bicycle or walking. Finally, return to Tulum after a full day of fun and exploration.

The activities were a great day out - the small boat, Isla Pasion and Holbox especially. There was plenty of time to enjoy those locations and have free time. That being said, the trip took 15 hours instead of the advertised 12. We were picked up 25 mins later than the suggested time (7.05am rather than 6.40am). We then thought we’d travel the 2.5 hours direct to Holbox from Tulum. Instead, we travelled a few hours to Playa del Carmen in a van and were then transferred into a coach - we had signed up for a “small group” tour and not a large one so this was a surprise and the coach took a long time to get to Chiquila (where you get the boat from). We arrived there at 10.50am. On the way home, it took 4.5 hours and involved the coach again as well as 2 vans. We did however get a lift back to the hotel instead of the pickup point which was great considering we got back at 9.30pm. Overall, the activities were fantastic but the travel situation was poor.
