We visited with a Flemish group this lovely not yet totally restored hacienda with a guide who spoke rather good our mother tongue (Dutch). The hacienda dates back to the 17th century. It was once one of the most important rural estates in the Yucatán. Inside, besides many original pieces of furniture, are 2 oil paintings showing Don Domiciano García... 更多
The driver we had hired to take us to Uxmal suggested a tour of the Hacienda at Yaxcopoil on the way. It turned out to be very interesting and scenic. A small entrance fee of 75 pesos per person was charged. The main building has been restored to some extent with work continuing. Many of the buildings look very old,... 更多
I stopped in while driving through the archeological zone. There is very rich architecture and fantastic people. There is free parking and it is just off the main road and in a very peaceful town.
We were greeted by a quiet and I presuming Arsenio who guided us in Spanish around the site. he had worked there along with members of his family until the mid 80's. He was familiar with the house the grounds and the fabrica having worked on the line as a fourteen year old. His descriptions were vivid and came from... 更多
I was expecting a ruin. Instead I got a lovely maintained yet not totally restored visit to a lovely hacienda. This is not a guided tour but the young guide was great to talk to when we visited the machinery section of the visit. Speaks a little english but with my little spanish we had a good history of the... 更多
I took taxi to Hacienda Yaxcopoil. Driver waited while I toured. It was such a wonderful Hacienda. The owners must have been very rich. The factory area, grounds, furniture, floor tilework, buildings all were wonderful to see and well worth the few pesoes to tour. Small gift shop with cold pop and water and trinkets available. Take your camera. It... 更多
Just 75 pesos to enter, and you get to explore a beautiful old home in your own time. The owners have outfitted it with original furniture and artwork, and you can see what a beautiful home it once was. I went on a sunny weekday with my mom and aunt. A group was shooting for a catalog, which was interesting,... 更多
This hacienda was once 30* larger than it is today, was rich and prosperous. Now the glory has faded, but the old buildings probably have more romantic charm than ever before. 70 pesos per adult give you a A4 page with brief history of the hacienda and a map and you are free to explore - alone (what I really... 更多
Hacienda Yaxcopoil is a beautiful introduction to the history and architecture of the traditional Yucatan hacienda. There is a small entrance fee and gift shop but overall it is quiet and peaceful. While close enough to Merida to easily visit on a day trip there are two lovely rooms which would make a pleasant stop for the night.
Yaxcopoil is not quite an hour's drive South of Merida, and is semi-abandoned. The main entrance area, behind a decaying ornate arch is dominated by a huge tree, with the long low hacienda lying behind. Inside it's very simple, with a few rooms with old furniture opening out onto an open-ended courtyard. Don't miss the chapel with its naive statue... 更多
