Hacienda Xcanatún

Calle 20 S/N X 19 Y 19A
Merida , Mexico
52 999 930-2140

A magnificent example of the Yucatán’s converted haciendas, this mid-1700s, 18-room hotel offers an idyllic base for exploring Mérida, a city three hours from Cancún by car that’s graced with many beautiful colonial-era white-limestone buildings. Restored with handcrafted wrought iron, clay, and stone, the onetime sisal plantation includes eight acres of gardens, a bridged fountain, and grand marble-floored rooms with hardwood ceilings and carved-stone waterfall tubs. Sample Caribbean specialties with a French twist at Casa de Piedra, housed in the hacienda’s former machinery house, and enjoy ancient Mayan healing techniques using local plants and flowers at Xcanatún’s spa.
