“Belilula” is a mix of Mayan words that mean “change your path for another one”, giving the perfect essence to their purpose: changing the way visitors think through a first-hand experience with nature.
The glamping tents are planted according to the topography and vegetation of the site. A raised wooden deck receives the tent and releases an overhanging terrace in nature. Maintained a traditional Mayan-type shape and a fancy private bathroom just one step outside the tent.
The concept behind Glamping in Belilula is the simplicity and temporality of the structures surrounded by untamed nature to create an intimate atmosphere while preserving the environment and wildlife. You’ll get to experience nature as it is, from within in an isolated, private way.
