If its your first time in Holbox (like it was ours), dont miss this lovely little outdoor bar! Full of locals and tourists alike, but a nice crowd, had different seafood samplers, cocktails, all amazing.

Awesome place for drinks, fare price.. However the lobster is tip top. The cocktails are good enough for 100 pesos.. And the staff is always wiling to help. You can be at the beach and enjoy a good drink at the same time.

Cool place just at the beach inside the hotel Mawinbi. Food is good but nothing spectacular. The only good thing about having lunch here is that you actually seat at the beach, but nothing else. Calamari was good but thats it.

This is a casual beach restaurant, with some tables on a patio near the small bar and some on the beach. The food is simple but good. As a vegetarian, I had the cheese quesadillas every time we went, along with excellent guacamole and fresh...More

Hidden behind the resort of the same name, is this jewel of a seaside restaurant. An open palapa covers the dining area and bar all set in the fine beach sand. During the rainy season, it is suggested to sit under a ceiling fan to...More

The restaurant is as much for our guests as for external clients. Note that the hotel is closed now. We will open on October 13. Greetings.
