It is a beautiful henequen hacienda founded in 1857. It has a main manor, a machinery room, a school, a dancing hall, a shop, a chapel, and in 1904 a hospital with a simple style was added with an administrative area, four pavilions, an operating room and a physician’s house. Today, all this is admired by visitors as it has been restored and enabled as a tourist place defined as a haven of green, beauty, and peace in Dzidzantún, the millenary heart of the Mayan lordship of Ah Kin Chel.

The services offer consists of 14 “villas” with a living room, dining room-kitchen in a terrace, one or more sleeping rooms, bathrooms, individual garden, and small swimming pools; 8 “ripios” – traditional Mayan houses with palm roof – with a sleeping room, bathroom, and garden; restaurant and multiple-use room (board games, billiard, etc.), tennis court, basketball, and swimming pool, as well as horses and bicycles. It is important to mention that this destination is 6.2 miles away from the most beautiful beaches in Yucatán, in the area of Chabihau and San Crisanto.
