Yalahau Lagoon, Holbox Island

Swim in a cenote at Yalahau Lagoon, where you can actually observe water coming out of the ground to make the pool. The crystal-clear water only makes it easier to see straight to the bottom, or traverse the wooden walkway that surrounds the lagoon for views and photo opportunities. This site is only reachable by boat; try to visit in the morning when dolphins gather here to eat. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Holbox Island holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yalahau Lagoon and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This place is teeming with wildlife, the boat journey over was magical with little dolphins swimming next to the boat. Once moored you take a walk up a cute little path surrounded by crabs and lizards...  more »
  • This place is small but it is very refreshing, apart from being fresh water there is born an eye of water. Reach this place isn't fast but worth the trip.

  • Is an amazing place, should arrive by boat but it is a short and pleasant journey, the place is simply beautiful, has a viewpoint with a beautiful view, if you like to swim in icy water is the perfect place, we love, the water is very cold but even for walking is perfect
