Hacienda San Ildefonso Teya

Like many other haciendas of the time, Hacienda Teya (on the eastern outskirts of Mérida) was in 1683 initially founded as a cattle ranch.


When the great boom of henequen began, the hacienda was transformed into a henequen farm and became one of the most important haciendas in Yucatán.


But when synthetic fibers started replacing natural ones, henequen cultivation finally ceased in the 1970s and the hacienda was abandoned.


A few years later the owner changed and the hacienda was rebuilt in 20 years of renovation to start a new life as a venue (e.g. for weddings) and as a restaurant. In addition to its own website, you can also find Hacienda Teya on Facebook and Instagram.


Teya, Gastronomía Yucateca Viva


The name of the restaurant is "Teya, Gastronomía Yucateca Viva". The restaurant is one of the first addresses in Mérida and offers exquisite Yucatecan cuisine. It has received two awards from the National Chamber of the Restaurant Industry (CANIRAC, Cámara Nacional de la Industria Restaurantera).


There is even a book with the recipes listed on Amazon: "Yucatecan Cuisine from Hacienda Teya". When visiting the restaurant, be sure to take time to tour the hacienda's buildings and gardens and learn more about its history.
