Isla Holbox: Undiscovered Escape on Mexico’s Yucatan Coast

Isla Holbox: Undiscovered Escape on Mexico’s Yucatan Coast

From a swaying hammock strapped to wooden posts I closed my eyes and listened. Dried palm leaves above my head rustled in the wind while providing refuge from the midday sun. The burst of fresh cut limes being squeezed at a rickety mojito bar nearby permeated the air. There were no speedboats with parasails in...

Kauai’s Poipu Beach: Do You Know the Way to Paradise?
