Holbox Island

Sorry for spamming, I´m home alone with the cat, the dog, a glass of Valpolicella and Billie Holiday. And I feel like sharing my holiday plans with you! Next year, I and my husband will have been married for 10 years, so I invited some of our dearest friends to an exotic holiday (at their own expense!;-)). I thought of different places, beginning with the Maldives and Seychelles, then Mauritius, La Reunion, Tahiti, Fiji, Hawaii and Zanzibar. They all have their charm and their advantages, the first two are known for being pricy, the others far away, so on and so forth. I keep going back to Holbox, a paradisiac island just outside Cancun in Mexico. It looks divine and it´s not as expensive as the others. Besides, you get to be around the inhabitants and get the Mexican spirit instead of being isolated in a resort. I dream of wearing my gorgeous wedding dress again, this time barefooted on the beach, with a crown of white flowers and a glass of champagne. And share this moment with my love and my closest friends.


What do you think? Has any of you been there? Do you have any other exotic suggestions? Lots of Friday smooches from the couch! Alina

  1. Looks a lovely idea. I have never been there but been to Mexico and really enjoy my visit there, so go for it 🙂 I will celebrate 10 years anniversary as well this year and the plan is to celebrate it by diving in Raja Ampat (our dream dive destination). It is always nice to choose the place that both of you would always wanted to visit 🙂 Wishing you the best!!

    1. Thank you for your support!;-) And have a blast at Raja Ampat! Is that in India? My husband likes to dive, but I´m claustrophobic, so that´s out of the question. :-/

      1. Thank you 🙂 No, Raja Ampat is an archipelago in West Papua, Indonesia, my home country. Just google it and you will understand why we think it is a dream dive destination. It is a home to 75% coral species of around the world. It is not necessary to dive in Raja Ampat, same like in Maldives or Mexico..but of course, it is best that he spends most of anniversary holidays with you than just diving all the time 🙂

      2. Sorry! I should have checked before writing! It just sounded Indian..;-) Oops!
        I´ll check it out! Otherwise, I really want to go to Bali, I hear it´s paradise on earth!;-)

        Hugs, Alina

      3. No worries Alina. Raja Ampat is not as popular as Bali (yet) – which means it is not so touristy 😉
        I hope you will find your perfect special place for the 10th anniversary..my best wishes for it and keep us the updates 😉

  2. Come to the Philippines! If you love beaches, you will love El Nido in Palawan. The beaches in Bohol are not as well-known as those in Boracay but they are just as nice, with less than half the tourists. And there are many other beautiful white-sand beaches around the country. Prices are very cheap here too. ^_^ Anyway, wherever you choose to go, congratulations on the upcoming 10th anniversary. 🙂

  3. What a great idea, and the place looks amazing. I am completely with you in preferring to get a feel for the local couleur instead of being locked into a giant resort!
