Bioluminescence in kayak

At night, the sea in Holbox lights up and shines with thousands of lights.


We invite you to come and enjoy this experience and, if you wish, swim in the magnificent bioluminescence that the elders of the island call ardentilla. You will learn more about this incredible natural spectacle and you will also enjoy a unique starry sky, accompanied by our guides who will make this tour unforgettable.

The bioluminescence is visible all year round; it varies in intensity according to the temperature of the water and the best season is from June to October, when the water is warmer.
