lovely, laid back eco lodge on the beach. Excellent accommodations were very comfortatble and very clean. Breakfasts were delicious.Our only regret was that a bar or lounge was not open at night since the resort is out of town on a rough road.

Balamku is a tranquil gem located steps from the ocean in a remote part of Mahahual. The sound of gentle waves lulled me to sleep every night. The inn consists of about 10 spacious, well-appointed, and clean rooms, with very comfortable beds. There is also...More
