Haciendas & quintasOther spaces
In the times of the “green gold” (late 1800), haciendas were born and they lived the great era of henequen. On mid-1940, when synthetic materials were created, the henequen industry and the greatness of the haciendas suddenly fell.
On the last decade of the XX century the haciendas took their harmony back in order to provide rest, reflection time and meditation spaces; but above all of this, to offer unique experiences to every visitant. The old machinery is now part of a luxury restaurant of contemporary Yucatan food; the stables and corrals are now spas and pools; and the old main country estates are nowadays charming proprieties from Yucatan to the world.
