Hotel Casa del Balam - Hotel Merida - Mexico

A stay at Hotel Casa del Balam brings the visitor face to face with an important Yucatan family: the hotel is the former home of Fernando Barbachano Peon, who pioneered tourism in Mexico and whose descendents own the land under the ruins at Chichen Itza. Public areas feature pre-Colombian and Colonial art, interior patios and lush poolside gardens.
