Where we are
 

Balamku is on the Costa Maya, just 5.7 kilometres south of Mahahual, a little fishing village south of Tulum, and Cancun on the Caribbean Sea. We're in the south end of Quintana Roo, approximately 1.5 hours drive from Chetumal, the capital.

   
Getting There
From CANCUN, it's a 4 1/2 hour drive south on Hwy 307 to Balamku. Take this main highway to the Mahahual turn off road. Along 307, you will probably want to stop at Tulum ( 2 hours south of Cancun) and visit their famous Mayan ruins overlooking the sea.

Another stopping place is Felipe Carrillo Puerto, right on 307, which has a few very good restaurants. Felipe Carrillo also has significant historical interest. It was a center during the last Mayan stand against the Spaniards, known as the War of the Castes, which lasted for the last half of the nineteenth century. This rebellion was highly religious in nature, and Felipe Carrillo was the home of the sacred Talking Cross.

Watch for the topes ( better known as speed bumps) - there are many, especially as you approach Limones, another little town on 307. Limones has its own little Mayan ruin. Chacchoben, a little Mayan village is nearby and ruin, just south of the Mahahual turnoff. Chacchoben is purported to have been one of the largest centers in all of the Yucatan. Just a couple of miles south of Limones, watch for the Mahahual and Xcalak sign where you’ll turn left.

Follow this new highway for about ½ hour to Mahahual. Turn right before the lighthouse and follow the road through town (the sea will be to your left). Eventually you will be turning right onto the beach road.  5.7 kms. to Balamku.



BUS SERVICE
There is new first class bus service with ADO from Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Felippe Carrillo Puerto or Chetumal right to downtown Mahahaul. So bussing here is very easy and, when you leave Mahahual for these destinations, the bus departs twice and sometimes 3 times a day. Please ask for the schedule.

You may want to check this web site www.ticketbus.com.mx for more information on bussing in Mexico. Mahahual has not been added as a destination yet. There are other buses from Cancun that stop in Limones and you could take a taxi or combi (small public van) from there to Mahahual if the times for ADO are not convenient.



AIRPORTS
There is a private airstrip in Mahahual for small planes. Chetumal (1 ½ hours from Mahahual ), has a fairly large airport and is expanding to provide more international destinations so watch for new flights here. Daily flights from Mexico City arrive late in the day at this time.
