Isla Holbox, Mexico
The perfect rehab from the ravages of the city, Isla Holbox is a tiny island off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. It attracts an unparalleled variety of exotic birds, who make their way to the shallow lagoon between the island and the mainland. This lagoon also has an abundance of fish, and fishing remains the primary livelihood of the locals. Isla Holbox has retained its unique indigenous flavor on account of being relatively inaccessible. Visiting the island thus guarantees an uninterrupted conversation with nature, amid white sandy beaches and lanes, crystal clear waters all around, and pelicans and flamingos to keep you company.
