Take an exclusive tour to a small Caribbean fishing island and visit the local wildlife in this amazing Cancun to Holbox helicopter tour!

The Private Holbox Flightseeing Tour will take you to Holbox, a small fishing community known for its relaxed lifestyle, beautiful coasts, and plentiful lobsters.

This exclusive tour begins at your hotel, where our bilingual guides will pick you up in an air-conditioned van and drive you to the airport.

There, you'll board a private helicpter that will take you from Cancun to Holbox, as our guide tells you about the Yum Balam Biosphere Reserve, where the island is.

Once in Holbox, a boat will take you to the gorgeous Yalahau Cenote, whose crystal-clear waters are perfect for snorkeling and swimming. If you're lucky, on your way to the cenote, you might even spot some dolphins! The tour continues with a short boat trip to "La Isla de los Pájaros", one of Cancun's best birdwatching spots.

La Isla de los Pájaros, translated to Bird Island, is home to numerous seabirds, including flamingos, pelicans, frigatebirds and cormorants. Cormorants are particularly fond of the island's lookout, and you'll be able to approach them as they rest.

At around noon, you'll head back to Holbox, where you'll be able to enjoy a mouthwatering lunch at a local restaurant. As a small fishing village, Holbox offers delicious seafood that you should absolutely try!

With your stomach full, you'll get a chance to stretch your legs as you walk around Holbox's colorful downtown.

Holbox is small enough that the streets are sand, and golf carts are used as the main transportation mode, giving the island a unique look that visitors love. Though small, Holbox is home to boutique stores and galleries ran foreigners who fell in love with the place and decided to stay, so there will be plenty of shopping opportunities!

Once you're done exploring, hop aboard your private helicopter to fly over azure blue waters as you end an incredible day. Private transport with AC back to your accommodations included!
