Haciendas

Step back into a bygone era of colonial elegance at one of our favourite haciendas in South America. These lovingly restored historic buildings are often set within expansive grounds in quiet countryside areas where you can glimpse the sedate rural life once enjoyed by their prosperous owners. Found throughout Latin America, haciendas are most widespread in Mexico, where they have reached a particular level of refinement.

Centuries-old former country estates and mansions have been updated with the latest in modern comforts, without losing any of their original romance. The result is an achingly atmospheric blend of luxury and historic ambience. Sometimes abandoned columns or arches have been left in their crumbling state within the grounds, perhaps forming the surrounds of a swimming pool or simply adding a unique adornment to gardens overgrown with luxuriant foliage and twisted ceiba roots. Guestrooms are equally magical, often with towering ceilings and perhaps remnants of frescos or other antique features that reflect the building’s ageing splendour. Each hacienda has its own individual style, but they share an intimate atmosphere and an overwhelming sense of historic character and charm of Central and South America.

Enjoy a self-drive holiday in Yucatán, and explore the multi-layered history of the peninsula, while based at luxurious haciendas on our Luxury Mexico: Self-drive Yucatan haciendas and Caribbean coast holiday. Discover vestiges of the once supreme Maya civilisation - including Chichén Itzá and visit graceful Spanish colonial towns and relax on sandy Caribbean beaches.
