My Experiences With Holbox Island

If you are connecting with me and us for the first time with FIT Life Creation, I traveled to Cancun, Mexico for the second time in 2019 since college creating content, as well as being hosted on an adventure with Airbnb.


My adventure with Airbnb included two incredible days in Holbox Island. My mind is blown in every way, and I will be back to stay longer!


It was interesting visiting Mexico 20+ years later with all the changes in my life. I reflected on how my health, wealth, business have transformed since then.
