Service that unites us all

A universal language we use to inspire, learn, and connect with one another.

About Us

HISTORY ……. Ceiba lodge is named after a surviving (two major hurricanes) young local tree known as «La Ceiba» in Spanish or «Ya’axche» in Yucatecan Maya.

While this tree has historical and cultural significance to the Maya as the «tree of life» to us it’s a representation of resilience, growth and prosperity.

PURPOSE …….Created to host retreats, church camps, missionaries, and our interns and volunteers while serving in Fundación Medica San Lucas’s ministry activities.

As part of the vision of «Fundación Médica San Lucas», Ceiba Lodge is a self sustaining ministry that creates jobs in the region and is a blessing to the community.

The first stage was completed in May of 2022. By God’s provision, we envision expansion in the near future.

Experience

Then God said «Let the land produce vegetation: seed bearing plants and trees. And it was so.

Location

“CEIBA LODGE” is tucked in the Mayan jungle, on the border of the Yucatecan city of Valladolid. In the design and operation, we envision systems that create a balance between human experience and the natural environment, keeping in mind the least possible disturbance of nature’s inhabitants. Valladolid is a colorful city and we kept those vibrant colors in each design.

Due to the special climate of the Yucatan peninsula, “CEIBA LODGE” shares the jungle with different species. Under its green tapestry lies an impressive flora and fauna with a great diversity of endemic species. There are multicolored birds, tapirs, deer, and let’s not forget the insects; all of which have been fighting for survival for centuries.

Each path (Sac Be in Mayan) takes you to different parts of the property opening the door to new experiences while offering a bit of connection with nature. There are a few running trails as well and some that connect to designated areas such as rec-room and pool (Camino Delfin), the palapa (Camino Jabalí), the hospital (Camino Hormiga), etc. “CEIBA LODGE” provides a unique experience to the guests offering a minimalistic yet comfortable stay.
