The Mayan World

The Yucatan Peninsula is a guardian of the Maya World, one of the major civilizations in human history. The Maya made significant contributions to architecture, astronomy, medicine, and mathematics. Their legacy and history have inspired countless travelers to explore its significant biodiversity, abundant archaeological sites, and rich Maya cultural traditions. This region is also known for its legacy of the «green gold era,» which refers to the production and trade of sisal, an agave fiber of great economic value in the 19th and early 20th centuries that shaped the region’s economic history. The sisal boom made Yucatan one of the world’s leading producers of this fiber, with exports peaking at over 1 million tons in the 1910s.

The Haciendas

The first haciendas in the Yucatan Peninsula emerged during the sisal boom after the 16th century and were pillars of the regional economy and culture. These properties, with their colonial architecture and extensive fields, reflected the prosperity of the time. Starting in the 1930s, many fell into decline and abandonment, remaining in ruins for years.

In 1990, The Haciendas were born has hotels, from a vision of preservation and restoration of this ex sisal haciendas through a sustainable tourism project with the clear goal of promoting the economic and social development of rural Maya communities. They highlight the historical and cultural value of these properties, integrating and sophisticating the hospitality of the modern world. They invite the world to explore the natural resources and deep knowledge of the Maya, transmitted by their surviving descendants who safeguard their cosmology.
