Slow Abundance at Casa Hormiga on the Yucatán Peninsula

Jungle sanctuary.

In Bacalar, a town on the Yucatán Peninsula declared “magical” by the Mexican government, Casa Hormiga is a holistic retreat focused on recovery through design, cuisine, and ritual. Guests can choose from a variety of simple yet stunning accommodations and even stay in a room nestled in the trees. Spaces like the Nest provide a place for artistic expression, while the Casa Ritual offers elemental therapies. And hedonism is not forgotten. Brote, the hotel’s restaurant, serves rustic cuisine and extravagant cocktails that channel the colours of the equatorial flora and fauna, and the breeze over the lake flows through the louvres of the beach club’s covered patio, soothingly saying, “relax.”
