Hacienda Yaxcopoil (YASH-coh-poh-EEL) is a Yucatan plantation dating back to the 17th century. The hacienda has been the location of several film and television productions, and is featured in most travel guides. Its archives are frequently cited in historical texts and research. The Hacienda may be the best preserved but unrestored hacienda in the Yucatan. The Hacienda is open daily for tours, a private guest house, museum of Mayan artifacts, gift shop, snack bar and events.

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.

I went to the Hacienda with William Lawson Tours and it was a great afternoon. The Hacienda is looked after and in moderately good shape, which added to the mystique. As we wondered through the buildings and around the landscape, my tour guide told me...More

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.

We watched a painter use a small detailed stencil to recreate the original pattern over the walls of one of the rooms in this ex-hacienda. The work, for one room, will probably take him weeks but he is patient and loves what he does. He...More

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
