Pasion Island & Eye Water of Yalahau
A small barren island found 10 minutes by boat from Holbox that insists that you rest in beauty and tranquility. Though small it has inspired stories and fantasies of great adventures. Ideal for enjoying all the privacy that nature can offer.
The cristaline waters of Ojo de Agua with it's opening to the sea is found 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the island and it is only reachable by boat. With all its freshness and beauty it was a refuge for the famous pirate Molas in the 16th century when it was a merchant port for the state. Now it leaves only it's history. Gone are all indications of it's community and port. Today it has been converted into a place exclusively for nature lovers. With subtil fragrance and forest charm, it bewitches all those who dip in this beutiful pool.
