It’s difficult to think of Cancun and not imagine a long stretch of beach laid out at the base of towering resorts. If a visitor ever gets their toes wet, it’s a cinch that the No. 1 vacation activity will be claiming to spot on Cancun’s glittering strand. From that position, a world of leisure pursuits waits to be discovered.

SER CASASANDRA, HOLBOX ISLAND, MEXICO

If your idea of romantic relaxation is to kick off your shoes and pad around in a sarong all day, then Ser Casasandra is your boho beach paradise: think gauze-draped four posters (where staff leave you a Frederico García Lorca poem on your pillow at turn-down), veranda hammocks and sunset mojitos at the bar.(more)

A sentirla nominare per la prima volta, si ha la sensazione di avere a che fare con un videogioco, in realtà si tratta di un paradiso posto sulla punta più settentrionale della penisola dello Yucatan ed è un’isola di circa quaranta chilometri di lunghezza e meno di 2 di larghezza, il cui nome in lingua Maya vuol dire Occhio (o Buco) Nero.

Traveling to Isla Holbox, Mexico

Casa Sandra is a tiny boutique hotel — it only has 18 rooms! You’ve got to book far ahead for this reason. Everything about this property is dreamy. It’s all designed so carefully, with a local, rustic look that blends into the island but is still gorgeous. The staff are excellent — some of the best hospitality industry folks I’ve met in recent memory.(more)
