Artist in Residence Program: Beds for Brushes
Design or finish a mural and stay for free. We have an almost completed mural on the second floor hallway. Our current colaborative mural has nine different artists each completing an element of the design, using their own individual style.... making, at the end, a colaborative effort of ten artists. We are now looking for an empty wall to start the next project. See http://www.casahamaca.com/activities/mural.htm
We care for you like family. It doesn't matter if you are a first time visitor to the Yucatan or a veteran traveler to the Mayan world... we can help you experience the varied wonders of the Yucatan. We can guide you to the must-sees as well as off-the-beaten track experiences.
There are no guest phones nor in-room TV. There is, however, a DVD player in the salon for your use, a wide screen TV in the palapa for movies or music in the evening and WiFi throughout the casa.
Almost everyone visits a least one of the nearby Mayan ruins. Pictured is the Castillo (Kukulcan) at Chichen Itza, about 40 minutes from Casa Hamaca Guesthouse. The ruins at Ek Balam are even closer.
Home of the Turkey and 549 other Species of Birds
The northern Yucatan is home to a large year-around population of birds...and the wintering spot or transit zone for an even larger number of migratory bitds. In just a few hours, a guest recorded over 15 species of birds in the gardens of Casa Hamaca Guesthouse. Bring your binoculars and head for the coast or the jungle for the day. Or just hang out on the veranda and let the birds come to you.
