This is one of my all-time favorite museum experiences. This former home of Danish archeologist/engineer Frans Blom and his wife photographer, journalist, and the Swiss German journalist and environmental activist Gertrude Duby Blom. Currently this site operates a hotel, museum, and research center run by the Asociacion Cultural Na Bolom, a non-profit organization devoted to the protection of Lacandon Maya and the preservation of the Chiapas rain forest. The home was formerly a dilapidated monastery when the Bloms rebuilt around the interior courtyard and renamed their home Na Bolom, the House of Jaguar. The personal library is still available for on-going research, continuing the goal of the Bloms, to have Na Bolom continue to serve as a cultural, social, and academic center. This couple and their love and affection for the Mayans and their forest environment is truly inspirational. This place is not to be missed.

Room Tip: We did not stay at the hotel, but the museum spectacular.

The colonial vibe of this historic place is one of kind. Really friendly staff and beautiful surroundings! We stayed here for three nights which was an absolute joy. Thank you Na Bolom and of course Frans Blom ;) the founder of this place if understood it correctly

The hotel is in the museum and you get a free tour so you can't have a better way to see Casa Na Bolom than staying here. The hotel is clean and functional but basic. I highly recommend it! Make sure that you put your breakfast in the bill of the hotel and that you tell the people at checkout that breakfast is included. I did not do that so ended up paying for breakfast.

Two nights two different rooms. Two very different experiences. Well worth it if you're staying in one of their suites w a fireplace. Here the rustic charm works and it's a pleasure. I don't recommend if you're staying in one of the basic rooms. The one I stayed in could use some TLC. I felt uncomfortable with the condition of the bathroom, the scratches on the door, the musty smell, the shared wall w a public bathroom and the holes in the curtain. On the other hand if you prefer charm and history over solid construction and clean finishes then you will be happy here. It's a beautiful property and I can understand why guests might want to turn a blind eye to these blemishes.

My wife ane I stayed five nights at this classic piece of history in San Cristobal. We stayed in the Oxchuc room, which is in the back of building. We fell in love with this hotel/musuem as soon as we walked through the main entrance. Everything on the inside is a piece of history - photographs, library, and dining area. We listened to a great pianist, Seth Montfort, and met very nice travelers from all over the world. Our room was very cute - the bed was very comfortable and the shower nice and hot. Breakfast was on-point and the coffee was spectacular. San Cristobal is an amazing historic city and I would highly recommond Na Bolom to anyone who was going to visit Chiapas.
