Mayan Adventures in the Yucatan

Genesis Ek Balam is an eco-tourism retreat offering an amazing chance to enjoy archaeological,
ecological and cultural vacation adventures. It is one of a growing number of vacation destinations dedicated to
sustainable tourism with low impact on the native environment and culture. Guests stay in simple but stunning
white-washed pueblos, enjoy the local cuisine, sway in locally-made hammocks, and swim in a natural rock pool.

For those who are there to learn, Genesis is situated at the foot of the spectacular archaeological site
Ek Balam in Mexico’s Yucatan, only an hour and
half from Cancun airport. The retreat offers traditional craft workshops, Myan language lessons, traditional dance,
herb walks in the jungle, acheological trips, and the simple life of a traditional Mayan pueblo. Those who like a
little more action can hike or bike the spectacular mountain setting or take off down the jungle trails. There’s a
large and unusual menu of activities on offer.

Packages start around $65 per night per person for a private cabana and three meals. Tents and camping are also
on offer.
