How to get here

Holbox is an island located northeast of the Yucatán peninsula. As it is an island, you have to go to Chiquilá, the town where ferries depart to Holbox.

 

From Cancún, by car:

From Cancún, take the road “Libre” to Merida and pass through a town called Leona Vicario. After 15 km, you’ll get to a cross called “Nuevo Valladolid”, where you have to turn right. You will pass two small villages, until you get to a T turn. Turn right, to Kantunilkin. From Kantunilkin, you have to continue another 40 km towards Chiquilá. Once there, find a parking lot for your car and walk to the port to take the ferry. When you get to the island, you can either walk or take a taxi to your hotel.

 

From Cancún, by bus:

From Cancún’s “terminal centro”, you have to take a bus to Chiquilá. Ask at Mayab’s post. There are buses at 7:45 am, 10:30 am and 12:45 pm, but we recommend you confirm these times in advance. Once in Chiquilá, aproximately three and a half hours later, you have to take the ferry that will take you to Holbox. When you get to the island, you can either walk or take a taxi to your hotel.

 

From Cancún, by transfer:

The easiest option: we pick you up wherever you are (airport or hotel), we take you to the ferry (2-hour ride) and we will be waiting on Holbox island to take you to your hotel. Door-to-door service.

When you get to the island, you can either walk or take a taxi to your hotel.

 

From Mérida or Valladolid, by bus:

The bus leaves Merida at 11:30 pm and takes 6 hours to get to Chiquilá. This same bus passes through Valladolid at 2:30 am. The bus gets to Chiquilá in time to take the 6 am ferry.

    Mi pregunta es: voy en moto a chiquilla
    Podré pasar mi moto a Holbox? Y si es así? Cuál sería el costo, es una moto Suzuki Choper 850cm3
    Muchas gracias por tu atencion

    1. Se puede cruzar la moto. Tiene que haber espacio disponible en el ferry y te cobrarán según el tamaño de la moto, un monto extra. También puedes dejar tu moto en un estacionamiento en Chiquilá y disfrutar de la isla caminando o rentar una bici.

  4. Hello please what’s the name of the company bus from merida to chiquilla leaving at 23:30?
    The line is confirmed?
    Many many thanks
