Which is why you should probably travel to this place. Not many people, no roads, no vehicles, no nothing. Just sand and water to quench your sea thirst and lots and lots of tranquil you haven’t felt in a while. You see, if you are one of those travelers who love the open ended beauty of nature without those traffic light and the roar of trucks, if you’d rather spend all day staring at the open sky rather than at the accounting book, if you’d prefer the quiet and soothing sound of waves gushing on the seashore than a police siren, then this black hole (holbox means black hole in Yucatec Maya) is the most suitable place for you.
Don’t worry about the island’s dimensions. Its just 12 kilometers long and about a tenth of that figure wide. Great views from all the sides adorn this little island and what’s more, there are no disturbing elements for miles at a stretch to waver the thinking mind. Talk about attractions? you can view the great whale shark from this island, have a dig at the place’s one and only industry fishing and of course, the biggest attraction is actually the absence of noise. Tranquility is at it’s best here.
And, if you happen to be a kite board lover, this island provides one of the safest and best avenues to have a stint at kiteboarding. There are no big obstacles, the wind speed is almost perfect and best of all, there are actually two schools here that teach budding kiteboarders have a ride of their life. And because there are no cars and no roads whatsoever, people there move about with the help of mopeds and golf carts. Its a novelty you will not find in any other place. More than that, its the birds and their variety that will catch your attention on this black hole. A must visit.
