On our way from Uxmal to Merida we stopped at this hacienda which was recommended by the travel guide book. Very interesting after having read the story and we could feel the history.

A great place to spend an hour, we combined it with the Sotuta de Peon and they were a nice complement to each other. Lovely place and a good wander on a hot day.

This property dates back to the 17th century and stopped sisal production in 1984. Don't fret (as I did) about the 100 peso entrance fee: it's worth while. This is not a gentrified hacienda turned museum/restaurant/ B and B. But it is grand, from the...More

This was an easy trip from Merida, a great half day excursion. The grounds are lush, with lots of space for kids to run around. The Hacienda has been meticulously restored, and gives you an accurate historical picture of the time. We did the tour,...More

The hacienda is in the process of being restored and appears that it will be quite a spectacle when it is done. Right now you can see a blend of the unrestored history contrasted against the beauty of the restoration. Entrance fee is a very...More
