Yalahau Lagoon Isla Holbox Cancun Attraction

A Cenote & Freshwater Spring On Holbox Island!

Yalahau Lagoon is a freshwater spring fed lake or cenote where ancient Mayans in the area got clean drinking water.  Located about 30 minutes by boat from Holbox Island, it was used in the past as a refuge for a famous pirate and as a swimming pool for a Mayan Kings wives.

The lagoon is now a tourist attraction and mainly visited by travelers who come to swim.  Yalahau is the name given to both the lagoon (between Holbox Island and the mainland) and the spring fed cenote at the island’s edge.
