Now is a rare opportunity for a discriminating buyer to purchase this fantastic, 2000 hectare hacienda and working ranch. The current owner has spent the last five years of painstaking time, energy and capital investment in restoring this ranch to super working condition. The owner has renovated all of the charming historical buildings and ranch installations to first class, pristine condition (main house, chapel, ranch office, workers houses, chimney, and corrals), constructed a large warehouse/barn in an architectural style capturing the historical charm of the existing buildings and refurbished the grounds, pastures and agricultural areas to their former glory.The refurbished lush pastures and agricultural areas are now served by newly installed irrigation systems, pumps and multiple electrical services.  The lush pastures have been subdivided and fenced to allow for pasture rotation. 

This beautiful hacienda is located in one of the most fertile and productive areas of the Yucatan peninsula.  Large rolling hills serve as the backdrop for the main house and installations.  The enormity of the property allows for a nature preserve with abundant wildlife and exotic foliage.There are five deep water wells on the property with irrigation systems installed on approximately 220 hectares.Most of the agricultural areas at this time are used to grow corn, soy beans, sorghum and tall harvestable grasses (maralfa and OM22) for the animals.

Historically, the hacienda was designed and utilized for breeding and raising prize cattle and cash crops such as papaya, citrus, and water melon. The ranch has been fully restored and refurbished and is now home to approximately 450head of cattle and four prize bulls with installations to support and projections to grow to 1,000 head over the next five years.  Because of the sheer size of the ranch, multiple business opportunities have been explored and are at the early stages of implementation including raising sheep with installations in place, the planting of citrus orchards and the complementary raising of bees with multiple apiaries and a full on honey operation in place.  The owner has taken a naturalistic and conservationist approach and attitude in rejuvenating the ranch and the grounds.  Select areas have been identified for conservation and their ecological integrity.  In addition to breeding cattle and sheep, the ranch is home to a diverse collection of ranch animals including horses, peacocks, chickens and geese.  The serene surrounding forest and hillsides are home to abundant wildlife, flora and fauna which can best be enjoyed and easily viewed at the aguada area with the newly constructed cabin, watchtower and ecological installations and pathways.

This property dates back to the mid 1800’s and is believed to have been a sugar cane plantation.  The hacienda is now a very productive, well established and well knowncattle ranch with several additional business opportunities in the planning and installation stage. The beautifully restored main house has a stately façade, three bedrooms and three baths and large indoor and outdoor entertaining areas.  The lower level, or sotano, allows for expansion of the living areas. The beautifully landscaped grounds have fountains, fruit trees, walk paths, lounging areas and charming tropical gardens.

The possibilities for this property of approximately 2000 hectares of fertile land is limited only by the buyers and owners imagination. The current ownershas spent the last 5 years bringing this beautiful, historic ranch back to life in a grand way.  They have done most of the heavy lifting and created a pathway to great success for the next owner to carry on with the established programs and plans with the boundless opportunities to create their own.  Great things are on the horizon and you now have an established operation to use as a springboard to even greater visions.

There is also a plan in process of starting a citrus orchard and pepper production program with plans to plant approximately 75 irrigated hectares for lime production (between 12 - 15,000 trees).  There are limitless possibilities for this ranch.

There are excellent staff and ranch hands on the property now that would be very happy to stay at the desire of a buyer with additional hard-working, honest local workers nearby if needed.Any owner of this property is a plus for the area, giving employment to locals of the nearby small towns so no need for them to travel long distances for work - a plus for both sides.This very large property has frontage of 2.5 miles or 4.03 kilometers along a main road and is 6 miles deep or 9.68 kilometers deep.
