The elegant Hacienda Dzoyolá is located in the southeast of Mérida and covers an area of about 4 ha (9.9 acres). Its history dates back to 1750, the official year of its construction. Since then, the hacienda has experienced turbulent times. It has been looted, burned down, and finally restored in the traditional style. Its name, Dzoyolá, is borrowed from the Mayan language and means “where the water springs”.
Today, the beautiful historic property serves mainly as an event and photo location with a special charm. With its elegant buildings, large pool area, and well-kept, expansive gardens, the Hacienda provides a truly spectacular setting for large banquets, weddings, engagements, birthday parties, or corporate events. Due to its proximity to Mérida, conversion into an exclusive residential complex with smaller residential units would also be conceivable. The location allows for a quiet life in the countryside with very good access to city life at the same time.
The sophisticated main house of the property offers two bedrooms with private bathrooms. A spacious living room forms the center. In addition, the house provides a dining room and a fully equipped kitchen with a large dining area. Real eye-catchers are the large columned terraces on the front and the back of the building. The front terrace gives access to the in-house chapel, which is dedicated to San Cosme, the patron saint of the hacienda. Two further covered terraces can be accessed from the kitchen. Both offer great views over the green orchard and are the perfect place to entertain guests.
The spacious pool area is suitable for both events and private use. It offers a large, filtered pool in Chukum finish, a sundeck as well as a covered terrace with ceiling fans, a bar, and a fully equipped kitchen. Of course, sufficient toilets for visitors were also considered.
A special feature of the property is the huge, very well-kept garden with numerous palm trees, native trees, such as the popular Ceiba tree, and a selection of at least seven different types of fruit trees. This garden offers more than enough space to celebrate, but also to keep horses and other animals as well as to build further buildings. There is a chapel built into the ground, three more pools, two large bird aviaries, and even a horse trough on the property. In addition, there are two spacious casitas on the property, one of which is already ready for occupancy, as well as the caretaker’s quarters and various storage rooms.
The hacienda is being sold furnished except for personal items and art. Air conditioning units are already installed as well as ceiling fans. As part of the restoration, the original high wood beam ceilings were preserved throughout the main house. All windows and doors were also restored using fine, durable hardwood. The property has four deep wells, one of which brings water to the surface with a classic weathervane. The property is delimited by a surrounding boundary wall.

The attractive Hacienda Dzoyolá is located in the southeast of the municipality of Mérida. The location of the hacienda is particularly ideal for prospective buyers looking for a place to live in a quiet, idyllic setting with very good transport links to a vibrant, attractive major city. Periférico, Mérida’s well-developed urban highway ring, is only about 3.5 km (2.2 mi) from the property and can be easily reached via the well-kept country roads. Via Periférico, there is excellent access to Mérida’s international airport, as well as the historic city center and all destinations in the prosperous north.
Mérida is both the capital of the state of Yucatan and the administrative seat of the municipality of Mérida. Its turbulent history dates back to the time of the ancient Mayan civilization. The city received its name in 1542 from the Spanish conquistador Francisco de Montejo, in whose honor Mérida’s main boulevard, Paseo de Montejo, was named. Numerous, splendid colonial buildings in the historic city center still bear witness to the former wealth of the city and give it a unique flair. In terms of tourism, Mérida is considered the gateway to the world of the Maya. Every year, thousands of visitors start from here to explore the world-famous Mayan sites such as Chichen Itzá and Uxmal.
From the point of view of its inhabitants, Mérida is above all a modern city with a very high quality of life. As the entire state of Yucatan, the city is one of the safest regions in Mexico and, not least because of this, is very popular with North American ex-pats, who choose Mérida as their preferred domicile. The best hospital network in México also contributes to the great popularity. An excellent health care system has been created here through medical cooperation with cities like Houston. Some private clinics even surpass the standards of leading industrial nations. In addition, of course, the generally good weather is a decisive factor in the well-being of the city’s residents.
Enjoy the comfortable lifestyle of the spirited capital of Yucatan as well. Visit the impressive historic center, dine in fine restaurants, stroll along Mérida’s famous boulevard Paseo de Montejo, discover the numerous museums, theaters, and cinemas, and discover the Mayan culture. There is also nothing in the way of an extensive shopping tour. The modern malls in the north of the city, such as La Isla Cabo Norte or Galerías Mérida, welcome you. In addition, many large North American retail chains, such as Costco, Wal-Mart, or Home Depot, have at least one store in the city.
