Located across from the Uxmal Pyramids and Temples, our historic resort offers an inviting working plantation, as well as two outdoor swimming pools, open year round and the adjacent Choco-Story Cacao and Chocolate Museum. Learn the story of Chocolate, one of the Maya’s gifts to the world, and see actual cacao trees growing on the grounds.

Rooms & Suites at The Hacienda Uxmal Plantation & Museum feature a blend of traditional Mayan and Spanish décor, and include terraces overlooking our pools and tropical gardens. All rooms & Suites are equipped with air conditioning, a ceiling fan and a flat-screen Satellite TV. Free Wi-Fi is available in most rooms, terraces and all public areas.

Guests may dine at one of two restaurants featuring Yucatecan, Mayan, Mexican and Continental cuisine.

For centuries, we have been honored to host influential personalities: Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Phillip of England, Prince Rainier & Princess Grace of Monaco, Jacqueline Kennedy and her family, who have lent their names to some of our most elegant suites. Explorers, archaeologists and adventures that have all made The Hacienda Uxmal Plantation & Museum their home while in the Yucatan.

The famous Archeological Zone of Uxmal is only a 10 minute (800 meter) walk from the Hacienda.  Experience the wonders of this UNESCO World Heritage site, home to arguably the most exquisite examples of Late Mayan art and architecture.  Wonder at the Pyramid of the Magician, the only pyramid in either the New World or the Old with an elliptical base and rounded sides.  Explore a half-dozen more incredible structures left behind centuries ago.  Frank Lloyd Wright, America’s foremost architect during the 20th Century, considered Uxmal to be one of humanity’s grandest architectural achievements.  Mayan designs inspired Wright’s famed Hollyhock House, the Ennis house and three more “textile block” houses in the Los Angeles Hills, as well as the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo (since demolished).

The Merida International Airport is a mere 40-minute ride from our resort. The Cancun International Airport can be reached in less than 4 hours.
