Genesis Ek Balam is a unique, eco-ethnic retreat set on a private jungle acre neighbouring Xcanche, a traditional Mayan Village 300 metres from the Ek Balam (Black Jaguar) ruins. Genesis offers guests the opportunity to join her local Mayan neighbours in their daily activities of grinding corn, preparing tortillas and weaving hammocks.
9 rooms and cabins feature comfy beds, ceiling or wall fans and are designed for passive cooling. There are pressurized hot water showers in most rooms and solar heated showers. Genesis eco-lodge amenities include a cenote-fed swimming pool, outdoor ‘eco’ showers and large gardens.
Area activities include, but are not limited to, swimming and rapelling at Cenote Xcanche, cycling, hiking, learning Mayan words and phrases and the Artisan’s Tour. There are also cycle tours to a cave adorned with prehispanic petroglyph and to a Rural Farm and Lost Ruins Tour. Perma-culture workshops with local Mayan farmers and a delicious Cocoa to Chocolate excursion will be offered in the near future.
Genesis is a friendly destination for Artist/Writer retreats and singles on vacation – guests have the opportunity to join like-minded people in a supportive ‘no double occupancy requirement’ environment without compromising individual privacy.
Genesis will assist in arranging transportation to and from the Merida and Cancun airports, Chichen Itza, Cenote Dzitnup, Gulf Coast Bio-sphere Reserve, Caribbean beaches and other nearby attractions.
Genesis is a spiritual/wellness eco-retreat for vacationers interested in curative massage, purification rituals and ceremonies and ideology and practices of Mayan Shamanism. Genesis is a low impact, economical paradise for vacationers that appreciate nature and value Mayan cultural heritage.
