Mi Casa, Tu Casa… It was a warm December night, just a few days before the opening of a still-unnamed hotel, when thirteen turtles, guided by some far-off memory of home, began to find their way back to Holbox.

At the end of the day, home is where our family is, and Casa las Tortugas is a big, embracing family. That feeling of returning home, even a place we haven’t visited yet, is exactly the idea of this hotel.

Wake up to the sound of the island, the air whistling through palm leaves, the water as it reaches the sand, the song of waterbirds…

 Holbox is a vibrant island suspended in time. It is a place with a fascinating history, a cornucopia painted in shades of blue, with calm and fascinating qualities, filled with beaches and uncountable palm trees. As time went on, the island began to draw in like-minded people that soon became like a family, helping to build the hotel with their ideas and hard work. They were visionaries, explorers, and would ultimately become friends.

Which brings us back to that December night in 2003 when Casa las Tortugas got its name, just in time for the inauguration. At its core, Casa las Tortugas is exactly that: home. It was built as a family home with its doors always open to welcome friends and guests alike.

Local Lifestyle |Mexico's last remote island|

Holbox’s warm and open arms culture is been around for hundreds of years. This fisherman's town in the middle of the sea has a great story. Discover all its richness and inviting ambiance.

The name Holbox means "black hole”, a place where time and space hold still, where everything stops and is suspended forever. This infinite place has an extension 40 km long and 2 km wide and can be found at the Northern end of Quintana Roo, linked to the peninsula by a large sand bar. You can bike from one side of the island to the other, or walk through water so clear that it feels as if you are walking across the sky.

The island, more civilized than just a few years back, still maintains its authenticity. It is nature’s haven, a place for tranquil living surrounded by friendly smiles. This fisherman’s town has always had a willingness to welcome friends and strangers alike into their homes to share food and stories.

 

Le Bazaar |-  Boutique  -|

Vintage & handmade finds

When two friends return home from their respective travels, they always share with each other the items that they purchased; clothes, jewelry, and handmade, one-of-a-kind items. This is the idea behind Le Bazaar.

 

With Le Bazaar, Chloé and Francesca offer travellers the store they always dreamed of finding in Holbox

Le Bazaar is carefully curated by Francesca and Chloe, whom selects each of the pieces, making sure they represent the dream they both shared. The purpose behind the concept store was to allow the traveler to discover the magnificent designs that Mexico has to offer. It wants to abandon the clichéd idea of Mexican art being offered in souvenirs shops all over Cancun.

 

A relaxed and tropical atmosphere,

the Caribbean Sea lulling you with its sound and warm air on your skin.

Wake up to the sound of the island, the air whistling through palm leaves, the water as it reaches the sand, the song of waterbirds.

Holbox is where incredible stories begin…
