Mexico´s secret paradise, Isla Holbox
Villas Flamingos Holbox
The night was falling fast. Just as we made our approach the mosquitos were out in full force. There was no stopping them. We were without repellant and pretty much running into the office.

Still competing with the diminishing light, I knew once I made my way to our hut it would be dark and my inspection of the property would have to wait until sunrise.
We were led to our room, just a few short steps from the main reception building. The soft waves of the Gulf gently rolling onto the sand just feet away. My excitement to see our home for the next three nights was gaining as we approached our very own luxury bungalow. On our timbered porch sat two hand-crafted loungers, a side table and hammock.
