Episode 2 takes Ben and Marlise from Cancun, along the desolate jungle roads to the port town of Chiquila. The two hour drive gives them a taste of true Mexican culture, far from the all-inclusive resorts of Cancun. A 30-minute boat ride from Chiqula drops them on the pristine island of Isla Holbox. Void of cars, the only meas of transportation on the island are bikes or golf carts. White sandy streets are lined with palapa hotels and restaurants, many of which Ben and Marlise inspected during their two days on the island. The couple selected Hotel Las Nubes as their resort of choice, a stunning five-star property perched at the end of the island. One of the highlights of their stay was a sunset cruise where Ben tried his luck at sailing.
