Hacienda San José Chakán: A Unique Lifestyle Concept in the Heart of the Mayan Country

The Hacienda San Jose Chakan (the word Chakan means Red Snake in Maya) was built in the 1900’s, during the era of the “Yucatecan Green Gold”. Sisal (Henequen in Spanish), the agave plant used to manufacture rope, twine, and coarse fabrics for decades. During the end of the XIX and the beginning of the XX Centuries, the Haciendas of the Yucatan Peninsula exported this material to the United States as well as every country in Europe, Asia and Southamerica.


San Jose Chaka belonged to a Yucatecan Family for 65 years, but in 1999 it was acquired by a group of investors from France who envisioned and foresaw an upscale and exclusive residential project.


The property was thoroughly renovated and turned into a place of magic, filled with history, culture, impressive architecture, astonishing decorations, beautiful gardens and open areas.



San Jose Chakan is strategically located just 15 minutes away from Periférico and the Cosmopolitan city of Merida, Yucatan, where you can find all kind of World Class services and attractions, including an International Airport with direct flights to Houston, Miami and Las Vegas.


From American Franchises such as TGI Friday’s, Carl’s Junior, Costco, Sam’s Club, Tony Roma’s, IHOP, Hyatt Regency or Walmart; to local and regional restaurants featuring the one of a kind Yucatecan Cuisine, traditional markets with meats, poultry, fish, textiles, all kinds of arts and crafts, hammocks, guayaberas, etc., or if you’re in the mood for a typical “taco”, you can attend small restaurants featuring homemade “Cochinita Pibil”.
