A little about the Hacienda
Something magical about this place…
Hacienda San Jose Pachul dates back to the mid 19th century when it was part of a hennequen plantation. The principal structure on the property was a “casco”, the factory building where hennequen plants were transformed into sisal rope.
With the invention of synthetic fibers for ropes near the beginning of the 20th century, the hennequen industry collapsed. The casco was abandoned and fell into ruin.
In the 1980’s the property was briefly turned into a cattle ranch. That venture, too, was abandoned. Only the foundation of the barn remains, and the main building continued to be left in a ruined state.
In 2006, the property was purchased by its present owners. While work is on-going, by 2010 the reconstruction of the main facilities had taken shape and the property had become a unique, special, private and quiet place to relax
