Enjoy A New Hacienda

Hacienda San Jose Pachul outside of Merida Yucatan MexicoRelax, Unwind, Play, Eat at Hacienda San Jose Pachul. Even after thirteen wonderful years living in Yucatan, there are still great discoveries to be made!

Jose Fernandez and his partner Richard Fuller purchased the ruins of an old hacienda near the village of Kinchil on the way to Celestun, and with love and care have created a hidden treasure.

With a group of friends I recently spent a very special afternoon. Together, we enjoyed a leisurely, six-course gourmet lunch created by Jose, where each dish was created from locally-grown ingredients. Jose has a very special touch and the hacienda itself is magical. The old and renovated hacienda buildings are set in beautiful tropical gardens that were designed and are cared for by Richard. There are two luxurious guest rooms, one in old hacienda style. The other guest room is modern and light, and both are large, very private and so relaxing! The rooms are blessed with private patios and everything you can imagine is provided to the guests.

It is definitely worth making time on your busy schedule for a visit to Hacienda San Jose Pachul. Whether you stay overnight or book ahead for a gourmet lunch experience in unique surroundings, consider visiting this magical place. Jose tells me they are planning spa get-away days that will be presented hand-in-hand with a well-Hacienda San Jose Pachul outside of Merida Yucatan Mexicoknown Merida spa. Then guests will be able to enjoy a massage, facial, pedicure, spa lunch and some time by the pool. I can’t wait! Look them up at, but book ahead as dining is by reservation only. Be sure to get directions, as the hacienda is kept hidden by design, to protect its privacy and that of the guests. If you take the time to visit, you won’t be sorry!
