Why Knot

I built my dream home for me and my family and I am ready to share it with you.

Come join us in the beautiful Holbox Island in Quintana Roo, México.


Welcome to Why Knot!

Take a peek inside and see why hundreds return every year.

The wild beauty of Holbox

Located north of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, Isla Holbox (hol-bosh)  in Quintana Roo State is part of the Yum Balam Biosphere Reserve.

It is separated from the mainland by the shallow Yalahau Lagoon, which is home to more than 150 bird species, including roseate spoonbills, pelicans, herons, ibis and flamingos.

The island is between the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, with waters rich in marine life, including sea turtles, dolphins, manta rays and whale sharks.

Island highlights include bird watching, whale sharks viewing, kiteboarding, Holbox Village, Punta Coco Beach and enjoying the island’s natural beauty.

Guest Reviews

One of my favorite ever and absolutely the best place to stay on Holbox! Why Knot looks just like the photos and is stunning in person.

The colorful accommodations are very charming, the owner and staff are lovely and the location is removed enough from the main plaza to feel off the beaten path, but close enough to remain convenient.
