Ochil
   

As far as we know, the municipal lands where San Pedro Ochil is located were part of the estates that the descendants of Francisco de Montejo reserve for themselves. The oldest records of ownership date back to the 17th century, contemporary with the property at Temozón Sur, when the alter was used as a cattle ranch under the ownership of Diego de Mendoza, brother of the owner of Los Montes de Uayalceh, Captain Iñigo de Mendoza, who was mayor of Merida in 1649. However, there is archaeological evidence that the site was a Mayan settlement, which inevitably served as a quarry for colonial structures. In the second half of the 19th century, , San Pedro Ochil, like pother properties, turned to the exploitation of sisal. The building probably dates from the 18th century. As for the “new boom”, the tourist stop that operates here today was established in 1999 to give continuity to the vigor the place has shown over the years.

San Pedro Ochil is located 43 kilometers along the Merida-Campeche highway, following the road that leads to the archaeological site at Uxmal, in the municipality of Abalá, near the road leading to the archaeological site.
