My husband, 7 year old son and I left a place we were staying further up the peninsula in search of quiet, tranquility and a reef that was in good shape. We found all this and more at Balamku and the surrounding area. Alan, the owner, greeted us when we arrived and for the 5 days we were here was always available for a chat and so willing to provide advice on sites, flora, fauna and anything else we might be interested in. He is very knowledgeable.
Breakfast was wonderful - homemade granola and fresh papaya from the tree on the property followed by a large selection of hot food choices (the French toast is very good).
The houses are spacious, clean, airy and very cool with fresh ocean breezes, the view is expansive and the white sand beach lovely for snorkeling, swimming or just splashing about. It is the quiet location we were looking for!
Finally, it is inspiring to see how well such an environmentally friendly and off-grid place functions. It is nice to know that places like this contribute to protecting the amazing health and vitality of the reef, which is not in great shape further up the coast in places like Tulum.
