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.

  • What a beautiful this Hacienda surrounded by greenery and silence! Between agave plantations, trees and fruit trees, the beautiful, ancient structure, with large shady porch. Here are arranged the tables with food and coffee tables that sit. Typical Mexican food, meat, fish and vegetables, is really very good. Delicious caramelized papaya with a sauce perfumed with spices. Absolutely worth considering.

  • I went after visiting Uxmal by opinions that had read, the place is well to go out to eat since they have good seasoning, it will enjoy "poor Knight" very good dessert and that personally I am not much taste the desserts so someone who like the dessert is guramente, the firm is at 220 pesos but to visit as Treasury, I think there are better options for a Yucatan...

Where to stay in Merida

Yucatan's capital and cultural hub offers a range of accommodations concentrated almost entirely around its historical center, offering convenient access to the architectural marvels and museums that make the city a popular destination. Look in the streets surrounding Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan for some basic but perfectly located budget-friendly options. If the center feels too full of tourists, head north to the less frenetic neighborhood of Montes de Ame, where you can find some laidback private rentals.
