An amazing tropical paradise near Ek Balam ruin which is absolutely wonderful. Lee has created a shangri-la. Gloria is wonderful and made delicious breakfast and dinner- her tortillas are divine. The room was nice and comfortable. I loved all her dogs and kitties! This is...More

Just wait until we start the Yoga-with-Kittens workshops! lol. It was fun having you here.
Genesis Eco-Oasis is so good located in the middle of a Mayan village. Great to go for a walk in the village; simple and far away from home. We travelled without a car, but it was easy to take a bike to Ek Balam ruins...More

It IS fantastic! I´ve been a permanent resident of Ek Balam for 16 yrs and I can vouch for its authenticity! No floor shows, no garish costumes, no performances. Just the most friendly, welcoming and generous people you´ll meet.
Knowing that unrealistic expectations, especially at...More
We stayed here in mid December, and this little b&b was our first stop of our two week Christmas break. I found this place whilst researching jungle retreats and I didn’t hesitate to book when I saw the other reviews on trip advisor. The rooms...More

It was delightful watching your little girl interact so gently with the kittens. Thanks for noticing how much loving work goes into our outdoor spaces! It is all about Life, in all its Abundance and Diversity! We would love to have you back.
This place is unique. It's a guesthouse, with small villas, usually with one room at each level. In between a lush garden. But this place lives up to the label eco lodge. The rooms have insect screens but no doors, so they open to the...More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. So glad you enjoyed your stay as well. It might be worth mentioning too that most of the tours we organize are free, by donation to the host family. Thanks for trusting me with your vacation plans!

A taxi from the airport, here will be considerably more expensive than the other direction (due to regulations and licencing required to pick up passengers at the airport). A taxi from Genesis to the airport will take just over 2 hours on the toll road. The taxi will cost between $70 and $80 and you cover the toll fee which is $16 at this time. Thanks for writing.
