Las Nubes Holbox: A piece of heaven in the Mexican Caribbean
In these times there are few destinations that really give you rest, so we hear that in Holbox there is a place that makes you feel like in the clouds, covering you with sensory pleasure and where rest is its second name. The promise was very tempting, so we packed up and traveled to the island of Holbox where the “Hotel Las Nubes” is located, a piece of paradise where the sky and the sea embrace the traveler.
When you arrive in Holbox you must charter a golf cart to take you around the island, it charges 50 pesos. There are no cars here to avoid pollution. On the way you can have a general overview of what is the destination, there are restaurants, hotels, cafes, bars, craft shops, the market and colorful houses, some with shingles, which give shade to the locals. Shortly before arriving at the hotel, you start perceiving aromas, sounds and views that transport you to heaven.
When arriving at Las Nubes the internet ceases to exist, being that a clear sign that you have arrived. There is also no television. For many, it may be a big problem, however, we recommend you to let yourself go and dedicate yourself to enjoy nature, anyway, and if it helps you, the internet signal is not totally void, in reception and in some parts of the hotel, you have connection.
28 rooms of fresh style, built with natural materials of the region, three pools, spa, restaurant, bar, private beach and the fantastic sea of Holbox, just for you, make up the facilities of Las Nubes, an eco friendly hotel. Some rooms have whirlpool tubs and other hammocks or beds to sleep outside, star gazing. As a reminder, the mattresses feature the patented German StericleanX by POTEMA system, which guarantees their cleanliness and protection against respiratory or skin allergies.
At the restaurant “El Sabor de las Nubes” you can enjoy regional food and traditional recipes, as well as seafood dishes such as lobster, octopus and freshly caught snail, served in delicious cebiche and seafood panuchos, as well as the exquisite whiting and lobster rissotto. Pasta is also available, such as ravioli stuffed with ricotta, spinach with capers and olives, or seafood fetuccini, another specialty of the house. All these prepared in an artisan way with selected ingredients combined with fresh products of the sea and land. Do not forget to try the home made bread there, it’s wonderful.
All reservations at Las Nubes include: continental breakfast, and something we liked is that you are invited to a cocktail but not as awelcome, but afterwards, once you are installed and really enjoy it while sunbathing in the pool or at LA NUBE bar, at dusk, you will be delighted by the view.
You are also allow 15 minutes at the Orchid Spa, a holistic space surrounded by nature and the sound of the sea. If you want more than 15 minutes, they have the Mayan massage, a treatment that seeks the harmony in the physical and mental planes of existence. Or the relaxing massage with aromatherapy, hot stone massage, body treatments, enveloping treatments with lime and chaya; Or with orange, mandarin and vanilla, among others. All the essences and herbs that are used in the treatments are cultivated in the same hotel to achieve the maximum of purity.
The hotel has kayaks, paddle boards and bicycles for you to venture along the natural spaces. These have no cost.
The tours that you can enjoy are:
- Snorkeling in Cabo Catoche.

- Isla Contoy National Park.
- Discovering dolphins and flamingos.
- Night tour looking for crocodiles on the river

We recommend putting enough repellent because the mosquitoes are fierce. As you know Holbox is an island, surrounded by mangroves, and home to thousands (or millions) of “chaquistes”, a very small type of mosquito.
Undoubtedly, Holbox is a one-of-a-kind destination and hotel Las Nubes is the place to be there, if you want to rest and fall in love with every corner of this gorgeous island. They sure know how to make the guest feel like “in the clouds”.
