Isla Holbox nicknamed the Pearl of Mexico is a small island in the Gulf of Mexico located on the north coast of the Yucatán Peninsula. Holbox is part of the Yum-Balam Nature Reserve which is home to more than 150 species of birds and exceptional seabed.

It is particularly famous for whale sharks that are visible every year between mid-June and September. Between charm and serenity, this piece of Mexican land is the place of rest par excellence and a true paradise.

There are beautiful beaches that have kept their wild side that will give you the impression of being alone in the world.

“Originally from Marseilles, I traveled a lot of countries before settling in Mexico 26 years ago. I was a diving instructor and then I trained in Mayan history to become an official guide.

I like to transmit all my knowledge and I enjoy discovering an authentic Mexico, far from mass tourism and above all I love to have a good time each day with new people. “


“French native and diving enthusiast for 12 years. I decided to come to live in Mexico 2 years ago to live my passion. I propose to accompany you for this day to make you discover the most beautiful corners of the island “.



“A 29-year-old Quebecer, I decided several years ago to barter the routine and the icy cold against the landscapes of dreams and the warmth of Mexico and I fell in love!

Through my work as a guide I explored the countless natural riches, culture, customs, values, music and life of this country.

I will be happy to share with you my passion and my knowledge imbued with my stories and my sometimes crazy and incredible experiences .»
