We did the guided tour in English and would heartily recommend it. The tour started with a film about the Lacandan and about the Bloms. The film was very interesting in content and very well made and totally kept my interest.

The remainder of the tour was very informative but ended rather abruptly when the guide said I could go out and look at the gardens and then disappeared.

We had tea in the charming courtyard to remain in the charming ambiance.

This is a place well worth visiting.

This is a place where the archaeology of the Maya is still being studied but also one where the spirit of the early explorations is very tangible.

Na Bolom provides exquisite hotel accommodation in a fantastic cultural setting. The gardens & rooms are maintained to a luxury level. Customer service is top notch from their Bi-Lingual Manager, thanks Hileana.

I can not imagine a more interesting way to explore San Cristobal from this base of Mayan history, facts & through the life of Franz Blom and his former house.

Memorable, for all the right reasons.

This museum has a lot of information about the Lacandones. It is very interesting as it shows a lot of the history of Chiapas and about the discovery of different Mayan archeological sites as well as the discovery of the people from the Chiapas jungle. Over all its a very interesting place.

Not to be missed. This was a highlight! The museum is a font of interesting history and is captivating. There are many rooms in this old home and exploring each one is captivating. The grounds are lovely as well.
