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.

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.

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.
