Owner description: The former home of Frans and Trudy Blom, a Danish couple that worked to save the region's forests and native inhabitants, is now the headquarters of a foundation dedicated to continuing their work and also includes a museum.

Na Bolom (House of the Jaguar) was originally the home of Frans and Gertrude Blom who did much to support the indigenous groups living in Chiapas. Gertrude Blom was particularly close to the Lacandon living in the area. The hacienda has beautiful gardens, lovely guest rooms, and excellent food. The only downside is that it's not especially centrally located, but, at the very least, it's well worth visiting if you happen to be in San Cristobel de las Casasm a beautiful Spanish colonial city in the highlands of central Chiapas, Mexico.

Even without a tour you will be impressed by this beautiful home, now a cultural haven and museum. Dedicated to Mayan culture and particularly to Lacandon people this is well worth a visit.

An excellent video explains the very interesting story of the founders, of the Lacandonan Indians and restoration of forests. Pretty gardens, interesting displays.

This is an exceptional place. Na Bolom is a beautiful building filled with unusual exhibits and marvelous photographs. It is an authentic, completely unstaged experience. The little garden cafe is delightful. The rooms are attractive and spacious.

Na Bolom was the perfect finish for our trip after visiting the Lacandona Jungle and the archeological sites. The house is very comfortable, the staff is great, and there are many interesting things to see and experience during your stay. Probably the most Chiapanecan experience in San Cristobal. Can't miss out!
