Tranquillity In Isla Holbox, Mexico with Ser Casasandra

whale shark

Colourful, serene and surrounded by turquoise waters, Holbox Island stuns for its unexpected vibrancy combined with a tranquil atmosphere. Lying within the Yum Balam reserve, in the Yucatán Peninsula, its impossibly greenish waters are a unique mixture of ocean currents and its wildlife so striking it will simply amaze you.

An astonishing visitor known to be the biggest fish in the world visits the island around this time: the Rhincodon Typus, commonly known as the Whale Shark. Guests can experience true adrenaline as they swim alongside this amazing fish that can measure up to 20 meters and feeds only from ocean plankton.

The boutique resort CasaSandra has 17 rooms and suites, as well as a private villa, with a modern, yet rustic style defined by its handmade Mexican and Cuban interiors, along with the works of art of its Cuban artist creator Sandra Perez Lozano. SPA and well-being experiences, such as sunrise yoga and pilates sessions on the beach, allow guests to immerse themselves in the outstanding natural beauty of the resort, whilst taking part in truly bespoke Ser Casasandra activities. Outdoor activities include snorkelling and diving, whale shark and dolphin watching. www.casasandra.com
