Hacienda San Pedro Chimay is located in the Mérida Municipality in the state of Yucatán in southeastern Mexico. It is one of the properties that arose during the nineteenth century henequen boom. It is part of the Cuxtal Ecological Reserve which was set aside in 1993 to protect both the man-made and natural history of the reserve area of Mérida.ToponymyThe name is a combination of Maya and Spanish terms. "San Pedro" is Spanish for the patron saint of the chapel Saint Peter and "Chimay" is from the Mayan language and indicates a type of Acacia plant.How to get thereThe property is located 7 km south of the Periférico of Mérida on the Carretera Mérida–Timucuy.HistoryThe hacienda was built in the late sixteenth or early seventeenth century and is one of the oldest haciendas close to Mérida. In the eighteenth century, it was owned by the descendants of Bonifaz Lara, who was originally from Spain. Juan Miguel Castro, founder of the Port of Progreso refurbished his wife's family home in 1852, and dedicated the reconstruction with a dated plaque to his wife, María de Jesús Lara.After the Castro Lara family, the estate passed to the Cervera family, when the owner surnamed Castro Rocher left the property to his wife Margarita Cervera Solis upon his death. José Eduardo Seijo Gutierrez, acquired the hacienda in 1982 from 10 lenders that had foreclosed on it. The family uses the property as their "country home", since it has a nice pool and a productive vegetable garden.

  • Went as part of a full day tour of some cenotes. It was our lunch stop. The lunch was fine but overpriced. As for the hacienda there was no tour, no looking at rooms, decor etc. There was a cenote the...  more »
  • If you go through this road around the lunch hour, you can stop in this hacienda which includes restaurant (average but very affordable), architecture in its juice, a few old stones, a cenote (but you do not swim "because the swallows and their droppings have invaded the place), an exploitation of cisal and a mini train that circled the block. No right of entry (except maybe for the train?) Note: three artisans producing their products on site the first uses the stone to create small objects of the House (support candle, door SOAP,...) The second makes objects in basketry, the third working money

  • After an excellent hike in Uxmal we were able to refresh ourselves and eat in a dream trapped in time.

  • This place is simply gorgeous and the food is delicious !!! It is rather warm but to be expected given the area. You can hang out under the huts where they have Wi-Fi and it's considerably cooler with the open breeze they also offer margaritas for a nominal fee I personally loved the tamarind one. Great staff, clean grounds, and beautiful ancient structures and lots of iguanas !!
  • Lovely food and atmosphere. Cool and funny waiter who made us feel really comfortable.
  • The food was absolutely terrible but the scenery was so beautiful it made up for it
  • We enjoyed an easy lunch. Muey Bueno!
  • Beautiful restaurant with an amphitheater built in the entrance of a Cenote. Great food and low prices.
