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.

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 stories about the hacienda. Not just facts, although he was very well informed, but stories... More

This Hacienda is a nice example of Mexican country-estate, its name means "the place of the green Alamo trees" in Mayan language. Buildings are mostly renovated, rooms are originally furnitured, gardens are well taken care of, so if you have time, do stay here for a little sightseeing and roundtrip through estate. This estate was producing a largest amount of... More

We came to the Merida area to learn about the hennequin industry. We were not disappointed. We visited this Hacienda as part of a trip to see several of them. This was the best. Like the three bears story, some of them were just overgrown ruins and some of them were so restored and functioning as 5 star hotels and... 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 said the colors are the same as the original and that they use the same... 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 Moorish double arch entrance to the workshop decorated with neoclassic columns and sculptures representing 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, in Spanish, and enjoyed it! Entrance is 100 pesos, but kids are free.

The hacienda is in the process of being restored and appears that it will be quite a spectacle when it is done. Right now you can see a blend of the unrestored history contrasted against the beauty of the restoration. Entrance fee is a very reasonable 100 pesos (about $5). Allow about an hour along your way between Merida and... More

This was the first stop and a wonderful hacienda that shared some of the Yucatan history . Beautiful building and gardens. You are able to go thought all the building and see the equipment where they processed the sisal. From there we went to two cenotes which we had already seen and are disappointing so our guide took us to... More

The place is very well maintained as an original Hacienda. Quick visit but worth the trip, specially if you are going to Uxmal.
