Restaurants and Bars on Holbox Island offer every kind of foods: Mexican, Italian, Japanese, Fusion. Here are some of Casa Cat Ba’s recommendations:


Restaurant and cocktail bar, Luuma is a little oasis in the village, great location for the evening. Very good cocktail and delicious food prepared by a talented chef.

Warm welcome and fine food at Basico. Located in the village, very nice architecture and perfect place for a lunch whenever you feel hungry during the day.

Salma Bar
Located on the village’s beach, Salma Bar is the place to dance at night. Only best music here, daily DJ’s sets. Cocktails are the best and served until 2 AM.

Alma Bar
Pool and lounge bar located on a rooftop above the Ocean. Ideal location for a drink or a cocktail at the end of the afternoon. Young public and DJ’s sets pre-party.

Warm welcome from the chef Giuseppe who cooks homemade pasta at perfection. Giuseppe combines only quality products to offer you the taste of Sicily in Holbox.


Shopping to do on Holbox Island: Men and Women Clothes, Artisanal Local Jewelry, Arts & Crafts. Here are some of Casa Cat Ba’s recommendations:

Le Bazaar
Le Bazaar is the outcome of two best friends getting together to curate,
handpick and match every unique item of this chic beach-essential inspired boutique. Le Bazaar offers selected items from around the world for fashion lovers. Clothing, accessories, jewelry & gifts.

Casa Cat Ba also recommends these not-to-be-missed shops, located in the Yucatan cities of Merida and Valladolid.

Casa T’HO
Located in Merida, Casa T’HO is a concept house formed by nine boutiques and a restaurant which open its doors to a traditional central courtyard, characteristic of architecture of the traditional Yucatecan houses. This mansion of the early XIX Century, eclectic in its style and architecture, considered heritage and an architectural monument of the City is located on the most famous street of Merida, Paseo de Montejo. You will find there emblematic fashion and design Mexican brands like La Troupe, fair-trade clothes line or Nuno Tulum, bags and housewares inspired by the jungle of Tulum.

Coqui Coqui Perfumeria
Located in Valladolid, a city which has an important history that’s been grounded in the art of perfume making for many years, Coqui Coqui’s flagship perfumery is housed within a XVI century building and situated on Calzada de Los Frailes, one of the most beautiful streets in Valladolid that’s only few blocks away from the Convent of San Bernardino de Siena. A place not to be missed and enchanting fragrances that you will never forget.
