Local Information

MACARIO GOMEZ is a small town placed 20km west of TULUM, Quintana Roo, MEXICO on a well communicated road towards most points of interest about northern Yucatan Peninsula, like mayan civilization ruins, white sand beaches, hidden caves into the underground rivers, colonial cities, trapped in time towns, etc. Might be the most underestimated asset around the language, uses and costumes still present among the native people as heritage from one of the most important civilizations of antiquity.

2020 Alumni - Casa Xaan In Na

I had an amazing time staying at Casa Xaan In Na. As a city dweller, spending time in the middle of the jungle with the on-going sounds of birds was overwhelming for me, in a positive way. Although my studio project changed due to my materials not arriving, I was able to begin what is now an on-going series of paintings. I will not forget the tranquility of working by day and candle-light. Macario Gomez is about 20-30 minutes west from Tulum, so if you want to take a break from your solitude, you can take the bus, taxi or drive to town. Alfredo and his family are very gracious, they will help you with whatever you need, but also respect your solitude and space. I highly recommend this residency for anybody looking to get out of an urban environment and work with the sounds of nature.
