VILLAS HM PALAPAS DEL MAR


General description

In the Mexican Caribbean, to the north of the Yucatán peninsula, there is a small little known and wild island called Holbox, where the Villas HM Palapas del Mar are located. This is a charming small hotel, built with the greatest respect and care for the area’s ecology. Located just meters from the sea, with just the fine white sand in between, Villas HM Palapas del Mar, with its 52 Suites (40 Junior Suites and 12 Master Suites) lets you get close to nature while enjoying a relaxed and exclusive atmosphere. The perfect destination for those who want to avoid crowded tourist areas and are interested in learning about the traditions and lifestyle of a small fishing village. Holbox’s roads are sandy tracks where people get around on foot, on tricycles or on golf buggies. It is the perfect destination for bird watching, kitesurfing, fishing, snorkelling or just enjoying romantic sunsets on unspoilt beaches.
