TULUM, Mexico – An unparalleled project has recently unfolded in the lush heartland of the Maya jungle, promising a blend of art, ecology, and ancestral wisdom. The SFer IK Museion proudly announces the opening of El Jardín En-cantado, a living art project and botanical garden, curated by the visionary creative director Marcello Dantas. Scheduled to open its gates on April 13, 2024, at the breathtaking Azulik Basin in Tulum, this venture aims to redefine the interaction between art and nature.

El Jardín En-cantado is the brainchild of the talented artist Cristina Ochoa, who, in collaboration with Roth Architecture, has transformed the area into a vibrant homage to biodiversity and cultural heritage. This garden stands as a testament to the synergy between various life forms—from plants and fungi to animals—and the Maya spiritual leaders and herbalists, offering a gateway to the ancestors’ profound pharmaceutical, mystical, and cultural knowledge.

Furthermore, it confluences multidisciplinary groups, including artists, artisans, scientists, and researchers, fostering a dialogue with the sacred and natural world. Beyond being a mere botanical garden, El Jardín En-cantado has been conceived as a multi-sensory experience that immerses visitors into a realm of knowledge and connection with nature. Since its inauguration, the garden is set to host various activities, including workshops on sacred ecology, meetings with experts in ancestral medicine, concerts, performances, and holistic events.

The SFer IK Museion’s dedication to blending art with sacred ecology is evident in its programming, which includes practical and theoretical workshops every Saturday, aimed at providing an educational and enriching experience for participants. Admission to this oasis of living art is set at 400 MXN, with discounted rates available for specific groups and free entry for the Maya community. This pricing strategy underscores the project’s commitment to inclusivity and community engagement. El Jardín En-cantado is a space for leisure and learning, a sanctuary for biodiversity, and a platform for exchanging knowledge. It represents a groundbreaking approach to conservation, where art and architecture play crucial roles in preserving and celebrating the natural and cultural legacy of the Maya jungle.
