Holbox, Q.R. — Ferry rates to and from the island of Holbox will not increase, says the service’s company head. Ismael Moguel Canto, head of the Holbox Express ferry company that makes the runs, says there will be no increase in the price of the crossings to the island. At least not for now, and not for locals.
Moguel Canto says that the company intends to maintain the rates they have had since 2014, however, they do intend to analyze a feasible increase in the first quarter of 2021. Moguel says if ferry crossing rates are increased, it would be reflected only on tourist tickets.
Moguel Canto mentioned that the decision was made in a common agreement with the other ferry crossing company Los Nueve Hermanos. He says for now, they have agreed not to increase the price despite the increase in the price of fuel.
As it stands now, the cost is 120 pesos for tourists and 80 pesos for locals with municipal voter identification. He pointed out that despite the COVID-19 pandemic, national tourism is gradually resuming, which is why they are putting off a possible rate increase.
