Hacienda Xcanatún

Hacienda Xcanatún on the northern outskirts of Mérida was built in the 18th century to grow corn and raisehorses and other carriage animals. In the mid-19th century, the site was transformed into a hacienda for sisal cultivation and processing.

The development of synthetic fibers changed many things and the demand for sisal declined and the hacienda became a rarely used summer home. In 1988, a hurricane destroyed much of the hacienda.

The current owners bought the hacienda in 1993 to convert it into a hotel and spa. At that time, the hacienda was in ruins. Therefore, the renovation took a total of 6 years and the Hacienda was finally reopened in 2000.

The hacienda is named after the town of Xcanatún, which is located directly behind Mérida to the north on the right side of highway 261. This means that you can combine a trip to Progreso or the sea with a visit to the hacienda.
