Welcome to the Mapache (Racoon in Spanish) Family! It is our goal to make you feel at home and show you the real holbox. We are the only hostel on the island that offers a generous, free breakfast included in our rates. At Mapache we make no difference between guests, staff or management, we invite you to be part of our small family, make new friends, mingle with the locals and see only the best kept secrets of our beautiful island. We can help you to rent a bike and will give you recommendations where to spot flamingos, the bioluminescence or the best beaches. We have daily activtities and we can also organize boat tours for you to see the famous whale sharks or the three islands within the nature reserve of Yum Balam. We offer two dorms with AC as well as spacious tents with air mattresses and fans. For a more private and upscale experience stay in one of our beautiful and comfortable glamping tipis. There is wifi throughout the hostel and our showers are always hot and have amazing pressure. There is a fully equipped communal kitchen, a book exchange, laundry service, towels for rent, a slackline and an amazing garden area for you to relax in a hammock. If you are lucky you might even spot the raccoons in the palm trees at night. Travelling with your little ones or furry friends? No problem, children are pets are more than welcome with us!
We are looking forward to welcoming you at our home.
