Yucatan haciendas

Virginia Castillo de Carrillo

The hacienda is in the municipio of Timucuy, some 25 kilometres southeast of Mérida.

Hacienda Chel

Hacienda Chel (since 1940 Hacienda San Antonio Chel) is located in the municipio of Hunucmá, in the northwest of the state. The hacienda was constructed in the 19th century.

Hacienda Yaxcopoil

Hacienda Yaxcopoil is located near Merida in the municipio of Umán. It dates back to the 17th century and was once considered one of the most important rural estates in the Yucatán, operating first as a cattle ranch and later as a henequén plantation. Hacienda Yaxcopoil was purchased by Donaciano García Rejón and his wife Mónica Galera in 1864 and has been owned by members of the same family since that time. The entire property at its largest covered 22,000 acres (89 km2) but over time, due to continuous political, social and economic changes, the estate has been reduced to less than 3% of its original size.
