  • And its people

“Simply magical! For a city girl, waking up at Genesis, listening to the sounds of rustling leaves, the chatter of different birds and the village life was the most memorable.”


Immerse yourself in a Way of Life, Nature and Archaeology in the Heart of the Maya World!

Ancient cities

Travelers choose Genesis for its proximity to world-class archaeological sites including nearby Ek Balam, once the seat of power for the Maya civilization in north Yucatan. We’re also close to Chichen Itza, Coba, Kuluba and minutes from caverns and unexcavated ancient cities.

Natural beauty

During our winter, December to May, very little rain falls. The jungle enters a kind of stasis. When rainy season starts in June, and for the next six months, regular deluges turn forests and fields into impenetrable green mansions of vines, shrubs, plants and flowers. Life rejoices. Yucatan is known for its abundance and diversity of birds: about 540 species of year-round and endemic species and 219 migratory ones. Borrow our binoculars and you´ll be impressed by the birds in our garden alone.

The people

Participatory Cultural Tourism is what sets us apart from simple overnight accommodation providers. At no extra charge we design and organize classes, activities and tours that connect guests with our Maya neighbours. Experience unrivalled Maya hospitality and participate in the activities of daily life from making cacao and tortillas to weaving a hammock. Your donation goes directly to host families.

“Genesis offers B&B intimacy in a quiet, eco-friendly setting. The place is postcard-beautiful. There’s a chilling swimming pool and delicious veggie meals.”


We don´t just provide accommodations. We have 20 years of experience helping guests to get the most out of their precious vacation time. As part of your stay we design and organize intercultural activities and tours free of charge so that you leave Yucatan having experienced the true essence of the land and its people. In addition, our rooms, apartments and cabins are built to minimize environmental impact and bring you closer to nature without sacrificing comfort. Prices: USD 65-165 + tax, double occupancy. USD 10 per extra person. Prices based on 3 night minimum stay. Discounts for 5 night stays.

We loved it! The grounds and pool are beautiful and the cabins too. You’re close enough to Ek Balam that you can get there easily in the morning before other tourists arrive. And we spent two wonderful hours with Lee’s neighbor Guadalupe, who taught us how to make tortillas and our own hot chocolate.


NOT JUST A PRETTY ROOM As well as providing lush and comforting gardens, wholesome food, and comfortable accommodations, we help build bridges to promote respectful, mutually-beneficial interactions so that we can all live better lives. Genesis Eco-Oasis has been a labour of love in the village of Ek Balam for 20 years, attracting international clients who prefer authenticity and connection to glitz and extravagance.
