Holbox

Captain Morgan and us riding around

🇸🇮 Holbox je majhen otok na Yucatanu, okoli 40km dolg in 1,5 km širok, na katerem ni avtomobilov niti cest – samo peščene poti in golf avtki za prevoz naokoli. Ne bi mogli rečt, da je to skriti kotiček Mehike, ker je kar priljubljena destinacija, vseeno pa s svojimi plažami, mirnim morjem in počasnim tempom daje občutek oddaljenosti od zmešanega sveta. To naj bi bil najin zadnji petdnevni uživantski postanek v Mehiki, preden bi 21. marca odletela dalje na Kubo. Zdaj je že vsem jasno, da je osnovni plan s za splaval po vodi za nedoločen čas, kar je en kup stvari postavilo na glavo. Sva se pa vseeno med vso zmedo karseda poskušala naužiti lepot in zanimivosti otoka: sprehajala sva se po “sipinah” med oseko, zjutraj uživala na praznih plažah, za eno uro najela golf avto in ga ganjala po otoku, kot se spodobi za katerikoli najet avto 🙂

🇬🇧 Holbox is a small island on the north coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, approximately 40 km long and 1.5 km wide, without cars or paved roads, the only way to get around is walking on sand roads or drive around in golf carts. You couldn’t really say this island is a hidden gem of Mexico because it’s quite popular, but the sandy beaches, calm sea and laid back lifestyle really give an impression you’re far far away from the craziness of the world. This was supposed to be our last relaxing picturesque stop in Mexico before flying to Cuba on 21st of January. While it became clear this plan was no longer an option and everything turned upside down, we still tried to enjoy ourselves and maximize our time here – which basically means we took breaks during endless searches for apartments on the painfully slow internet to walk on sand dunes during low tide, enjoy the empty beaches in the morning, rent a golf cart and drive madly around the island.
