Relax in a garden hammock, swim in our pristine, chemical-free pool,
enjoy the company of like-minded guests and feast on regional
specialties made on-site by our Mayan cook.
Genesis Retreat is 3000 meters from a spectacular archaeological site
considered to have been the seat of Maya power in Central Yucatan
during classic times. On the edge of a traditional village, it provides
opportunities to make contact with locals, view how hammocks and
tortillas are made, participate in traditional ceremonies and community
events, or learn basic Maya. Visitors may also experience the richness
of Yucatan's ecological heritage: cycling, swimming, bird watching,
hiking, exploring cenotes or just lounging in a garden hammock. Besides
the main lodge and dining area, Genesis Ek Balam includes 6 completely
screened, Maya-stylized cabañas on a secure, private acre. One cabin is
air-conditioned and all are equipped with quality ceiling or floor
fans. With our three cabin tents with double beds, Genesis can
accommodate 15- 20 visitors.
At Ek Balam, corn farming and hammock and tortilla making provide the
degree of self-sufficiency, which enables residents to live in a way
that has remained, in many ways, unchanged for hundreds of years.
