Hacienda Chichén

Hacienda Chichén, Chichén Itzá, Mexico

As one of the oldest hotels in Chichén Itzá, Hacienda Chichen has been a focus of activity in the Yucatan since the Spaniards founded it in 1523.

Now this historical site has been turned into a simple but charming, characterful hotel and resort where guests are just steps from the Chichén Itzá ruins. It is surrounded by acres and acres of subtropical forest and is home to over 150 known species of birds.

It has 30 individually styled rooms that are set amongst the gardens as historical cottages, simply but comfortably decorated. There is also a pool and restaurant but no room service offered here.

      The famous Mayan pyramids of Chichén Itzá are over 1,500 years old. The name Chichén Itzá is a Mayan word: CHI (mouth) CHEN (well) and ITZA (of the witch water). Some say this is because people were often thrown into the nearby cenote as sacrifices, and those who survived were believed to be seers.
