If you make it to La Isla Holbox, congratulations! This gem is a wildlife sanctuary, beach bum paradise, and fisherman's dream all in one.

Had the clams appetizer. A bit salty and not a ton of clams for the price, but really nice service and good atmosphere. The complimentary celery spread was interesting. I would return to try other things on the menu.

La guaya is the very best restaurant In Holbox. We come here every year and every year, Luca surprises us with new dishes. Be prepared ! In an outstanding location out of the village noise, a very friendly service, you can go for it your eyes closed.

Getting what you pay for, or not,... More

Great food with perfect service. Highly recommended for a nice pasta or fish carpaccio. Service was impeccable and all our plates were fresh and felt made with care
