Overview
More
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.

The place has an interesting history which was good to hear about and has a lot of authentic decor and furniture. They are continuing to restore the place. But probably not worth a visit by itself unless you're really into old homesteads. I went as...More

This place is good for nice pictures. Other than that I found it rather uninteresting. Pass by only when you're in the area anyway.

This is a stunningly beautiful location (if you like the "ruins" asthetic) with a ton of history involved. You will need a guide, but it is not guaranteed that you will have one who speaks English. This makes a nice stop on the way to...More

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.
