Yalahau Lagoon, Holbox Island
(3.9/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Yalahau Lagoon part of your personalized Holbox Island itinerary using our Holbox Island itinerary planner.

  • Interesting spring near the estuary. Saw some cool tiny fish snorkeling near the exit of the spring - water cool but nice. Really beautiful overlook worth the trip to see. Also went to the 2 bird isla...  more »
  • The place is very natural, is not yet invaded by being human, charged an entry of 10 pesos for maintenance and also in you can buy fried fish, ceviche and other things, water is beautiful, the this fresh water and can swim comfortably looking down just only the eyes, there are some fish that swim out there, but you do not touch. You have to know!

  • It is a nice place, the island has hieroglyphics and super nice... I think that maybe faltarian more things to add but worth giving it a turn out there. Only add to the water is a bit cold, if it's hot without hesitation can swim.
