Hacienda's South of Merida
The hacienda's below are between Merida and Muna. They are all within 45 minutes of Merida. You could combine a couple of them on the way to or from Uxmal or you could just make a day of visiting haciendas and churches along the convent route. Hacienda's Ochil and Temozon are part of the Starwood Luxury Collection and anyone can have lunch at Ochil or with reservations lunch or dinner at Temozon. The hacienda of Muycuche is in the town ten minutes from Ochil. It is very much in ruins. If you turn north at Muycuche you'll pass through Uayalche on your way to Sotuta de Peon. Sotuta is a working hennequen plantation opened as a musueum and restaurant in 2006. Reservations encouraged. Yaxcopoil is off the main highway from from Merida to Muna. It is an unrestored museum and if you are only going to see one hacienda this is the one to see.
