Like shrimps on a skewer.

Mayan cusine is focused on four domesticated crops : maize, squash, beans (typically Phaseolus vulgaris; sounds kinda sexy) and chili peppers. The first three cultivars are commonly referred to in North America as the Three Sisters and, when incorporated in a diet, complement one another in providing necessary nutrients.
Guacamole Was invented By the Aztecs and Maya of the ancient world. The name in their languages literally just meaning avocado sauce.
Aside from the health benefits people love trumpeting about Avocados, Guacamole is delicious.
Discover our unique culinary touch and fall in love with it here in Spirit Holbox!

Tortillas are both a perfect vehicle and accompaniment to many foods. At some point, someone decided to start frying tortillas which gave rise to tortilla chips Ė that thing you scoop your guacamole with Ė or entire fried tortillas topped with any number of things and dubbed tostadas.

My favorite is the tamale.
A tamale is like a corn hot pocket, itís made of -again- ground corn thatís kneaded into masa, cooked and then molded around the makerís choice of meat, then wrapped in a banana leaf and steamed until firm. There are variations of tamales all over Holbox, and the Yucatan.
Traditionally, the Maya filled them with cooked game meat or whatever they hunted.
These days the possibilities are mostly limited by your adventurous palette, though chicken and pork remain the default favorites for these tasty corn patties. In reality, itís hard to say what a tamal is in classification Ė patty, hot pocket? etc- so we shall tat this opportunity to make it its own classification of awesome!

Poc Chuc a particular style of grilled meat gets its distinct flavor from the salt and the sour orange juice it is marinaded in.

The area around Spirit Holbox is a sanctuary to thousands of flamingos, pelicans and other exotic birds and creatures.
Gnomes, Hydras, minotours, harpies, and some spring breakers around March.

The pelicans you find near Spirit Holbix are a type of large water bird that makes up the family bird.
They are characterised by a long beak and a large throat pouch used for catching prey and draining water from the scooped up contents before swallowing their food.
They have predominantly pale plumage, but sometimes with colors.
The bills, pouches and bare facial skin of all species become brightly coloured before the breeding season. Pelicans like this time best.
The eight living pelican species have a patchy global distribution, ranging latitudinally from the tropics to the temperate zone, and found in abundance here in Holbox.

Dig the rooftop pool.

Freddy of the Freak Brothers said the higher you are the better the view.

With some good fortune spot a flamingo down in the water. Or a pelican.
Or someone bathing topless.
