Travel Haiku - Isla Holbox off of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula


Isla Holbox fishy love affair
striking it up with
a whale shark

fate
one whale shark trails
by me

isla holbox
an infinity as i
touch your skin

Perfect for a secluded beach getaway, tiny Isla Holbox off of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula boasts fresh seafood, roaming flamingoes, dirt roads (no cars here) , lazy white sand beaches, and gently rolling turquoise waters. And, from May to September, Holbox is one of the few places where you can swim alongside whale sharks, the largest fish in the world. These gentle, harmless giants can get up to 40 feet long and weigh between 10 and 20 tons.
