the construction of Xalcoc:
All used materials are from the region and had been brought with a lot of care from the mainland yelling at Jose to put down that bottle of Corona and take care with those beams.
During construction all details were personally supervised by the owner and all work finished follwing the traditional methods of the region (two men working while seven others watch them doing little until the owner tells them to get back to work), based on manual techniques without the use of any heavy machines so it was built as in the times before the independence.

Holbox Island, located on the northeast tip of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico is host to one of the world's most populated fish habitats.
Holbox, with its beautiful white sand beaches and aweome turquoise sea, is a paradise for both the tourist escaping the tourists and the enthsiastic fly- fisherman.
Holbox bekons you to come to the Island and enjoy world-class tarpon fly fishing.
Here in the shallow mangrove flats not far from this hotel you will find abundant baby tarpon and snook in most seasons. However, it is the migratory fish that make Holbox island a unique fly fishing destination.
All seasons offer extremely favorable fly fishing conditions, and as early as April, migrating fish begin to feed in the clear water of the shallows, but the best fly fishing is during June, July and August.
Bonefish, barracuda, snapper, permit and jack crevalle are also abundant here in the spring and summer.
To begin your fly fishing adventure in Holbox Island, guides can pick you up at the hotel's dock at 6:00 each morning (me I'd rather sleep at that hour so please don't wake me).
Breakfast will be served on the boat to afford an early start at fishing.
The guides are have decades of guiding and fishing expertise in this field and speak some English (wanna catch some fish amigo).
The fishing boats are seaworthy 18 foot boats, equipped for your comfort and safety, that are easy to pole into position.
The fishing spots are between 20 minutes and an hour away from the hotel's dock and are not too deep.
Like Martin Keepman.
So put that ugly fly on your hook and away we go!

A couple went on vacation in Xaloc Resort in Holbox. The husband liked to fish at the crack of dawn; his wife preferred to read books with pictures in them.
One morning the husband returned after several hours of fishing and decided to take a siesta.
The wife, to escape her snoring husband, decided to take the boat out on the ocean. Since she was not familiar with the area of Holbox, she rowed out to the middle, anchored the boat, and started reading her book.
Along came the sheriff in his rusty boat. He pulled up alongside and said, "Buenas dias, amiga. What are you doing here?"
"Reading a book," she replied, thinking, "Is this guy stupid or what?"
"You're in a restricted fishing area," he informed her.
"But, Officer, I'm not fishing. You can see that, surely."
"But you have all the equipment, ma'am. I'll have to write you up."
"If you do that, I will charge you with rape," returned the irate woman.
"But I haven't even touched you," the sheriff objected.
"That's true; but you have all the equipment."

Holbox is close to the coast with many birds like flamingos, pelicans and other exotic birds and things.
Seeing pink flamingos in their natural habitant beats seeing them at the zoo.
Most of the people of Holbox Island make their living fishing.
With the exception of this stupid cop.
It is common to see fishermen walking through Holbox Village with their fish. The streets of Holbox Island are sand, common of Caribbean islands, and there are very few cars. Holbox is a pristine tourist destination because very few outsiders visit the island (pity). In spite of Holbox' natural beauty, inaccessibility has left it unspoiled by tourism.
A quiet get-away.
Did you know there are buses which are inexpensive going from Cancun to Chiquila. Then do the ferry over to Holbox.
There are six buses each day going and three returning from Chiquila to Cancun.
It would appear that this would build up a bus inventory in this little town. Perhaps the Cancun to Chiquila drivers then go to Vegas?
Who knows.
Maybe they go to to Rio Lagaritos for some doritos.
A young Holbox fisherman and his mother were looking for bait in the garden back of their humble Holbox lodgings.
The kid proudly dangled a worm before his mom.
Mom said, “No, honey, it won’t do for bait,” she said. “It’s not an earthworm.”
“It’s not?” Eddy asked, his eyes wide. “What planet is it from?”

Holbox Game warden: Didn’t you see the no-fishing sign, son?
Boy: I’m not fishing, sir. I’m teaching these worms how to swim!
