An intimate encounter with Mother Nature 

“Unequivocal evidence exists that land-use planning—such as watershed management or low impact development—makes substantive contributions to sustaining Mother Nature... Manmade Wetlands combine beauty and ecological function in a way that few other landforms can. As such, they have been and will continue to be important elements in site design and landscape planning. ”

"I immensely enjoyed my stay at Hacienda Chichen.  I have told everyone how pampered I felt, with fresh hibiscus placed in my room every day!  Not to mention the wonderful restaurant at the Hacienda.  The chillaquiles were so delicious!!!!  I could have eaten them every day of my visit. My regards to the Hacienda Chichen’s staff.  They were all so kind and helpful to me.  A special Hola to Bibiano,  he is a great birdwatching guide..."
