Timeless Luxury in Yucatán: The Haciendas

Can you imagine traveling back to the grandeur of the past, where luxury and history come together to create unforgettable experiences? In the Yucatán Península, a visionary group has undertaken a unique initiative: transforming ancient Henequén haciendas into luxurious boutique hotels. With a sustainable approach and a deep social commitment, the project known as The Haciendas is revitalizing these historic properties to offer travelers a truly unforgettable experience.


A project rooted in history and social commitment

2404 THE HACIENDAS EXPERIENCIA SPA CON ROSAS Y MESTIZASince its inception in 1994, Paralelo 19 has been dedicated to preserving cultural heritage and fostering socio-economic development in local communities across the Yucatán Peninsula. This vision has materialized through the acquisition and restoration of former Henequén haciendas, an invaluable historical legacy that has been carefully revitalized to offer luxury and authentic tourism experiences.

The restoration of these haciendas was a labor of love, carried out with meticulous care and deep respect for their original architecture. An interdisciplinary team led the process, drawing upon photographic and cultural archives to ensure historical accuracy in every detail. From hand-selecting authentic materials to employing traditional techniques, each step was taken to preserve the essence and historical charm of these iconic buildings.

Beyond the restoration efforts, The Haciendas is deeply committed to the social and economic well-being of local communities. Nearly 80% of their employees hail from nearby communities like Mucuyché and Abalá, providing valuable job opportunities directly to local residents. Additionally, they actively engage in community projects in partnership with the Haciendas del Mundo Maya Foundation, supporting various economic development initiatives throughout the region.

The Haciendas, born out of a profound dedication, offers travelers the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich history and natural beauty of the Yucatán Península through five remarkable properties. Of these, three are located in Yucatán, each with its distinctive personality and charm.
