When people think of Mexico they might think of the tranquil beauty of Tulum or the party resorts of Cancun. What they might not know about is the northern island of Holbox (pronounced Hol-bosh) which lies about a two-hour drive (and a twenty minute ferry) away from Cancun and feels like a completely different world.
