Highly Recommended Villas Flamingos - Isla Holbox
Curator’s statement

I recently made my first trip to Isla Holbox and stayed at Villas Flamingos. This property will blow you away with its attentive staff and comfortable rooms - but the property's beach front location and the island's sunset is what will bring you back.
