2 Responses to “Merida Events: Red Dress Run & Japanese Horror”

  1. Have spent a wonderful two weeks at Hotel Balam. Would love to spend some time in Tulum or Playa del Carmen in a comfortable but reasonable hotel. Please email me any reasonable suggestions.

  2. Adrienne, as far as we know, there is nothing like Hotel Balam in either of those places, though there are many nice hotels. I suggest you check out TripAdvisor, as “comfortable” and “reasonable” are so subjective. Good luck!
