It's also one of the oldest and most distinguished lodging places in Merida and the Yucatan Peninsula. It started operations in 1970 incorporating facets of the original home of Mr. Fernando Barbachano Peón, pioneer of Tourism in Mexico. His daughter, Ms. Carmen Barbachano Gómez Rul who was also involved on the family business, left the original façade and selected the name of “Casa del Balam” (Mayan words for “house of the jaguar”, to honor his father nickname “balam” due to his visionary sharp business mind.

    The hotel has a unique traditional Yucatecan home ambiance with a flair for the eclectic, its tranquil elegance welcomes guests as they walk through its original stone doorway. Antique Carrara black and white marble floors and Moorish arches frame the fountain central garden, antique furniture and pre-Columbian Mayan Art are found in every corner.
