Hacienda hoppers on the Mayan trail.
The Haciendas are dotted throughout the Yucatan Peninsula, close to the colonial cities of Merida and Campeche and to many Mayan sites including Chichén Itzá and Uxmal. You can hire a car to explore at your own pace - some of the fun is in getting lost, or we can organise a knowledgeable guide to do the hard work for you.
Each Hacienda is small and boutique (Hacienda Temozon is the largest with 28 rooms) and rooms and suites have been lovingly decorated in keeping with their Spanish colonial past. Think high ceilings with exposed beams, wooden double doors, cool tiled floors, enormous iron beds, private plunge pools (in some suites) and of course a hammock on the terrace for whiling away sultry Yucatan afternoons.
Dining at The Haciendas is a special experience in atmospheric restaurants cooled by ceiling fans, serving delicious food that combines the best of Yucatan cuisine with European and Mexican favourites. Private candlelit dinners can be arranged for added romance. Each hacienda has a swimming pool, spa, library and beautiful gardens. Hacienda Temozon also has a tennis court.
Our private guides can take you to visit the nearby Mayan sites and colonial towns or hire a car and explore independently. Have a swim in one of the many cenotes (underground sink holes), see the Yucatan countryside from horseback or mountain bike and then indulge in a massage at one of the haciendas’ fabulous spas.
Campeche often gets overlooked in the race to visit Merida, Chichén Itzá and Uxmal, but this sleepy Mexican town and UNESCO World Heritage Site is well worth a look in, as are its nearby Mayan sites. Stay in town at Hacienda Puerta Campeche or head to the beautiful Hacienda Uayamon – our favourite.
