This hacienda, dating from the 16th century, was initially devoted to cattle farming. In 1685 it was attacked by pirates, including Lauren Graff, Lorencillo and his lieutenant Agramante. By the 19th century it was one of the most important haciendas in Campeche. Cattle were raised, and crops included maize, Campeche wood, sisal and sugarcane. In the late 19th century it passed into the hands of Fernando Carvajal Estrada, who drove construction of the Campeche railroad, as well as education and medical services for his workers. The hacienda was transformed into an important commercial focal point thanks to the railroad, since this provided transportation for the hacienda's produce. Decline set in in 1911, when it was occupied by rebels who destroyed the machinery, boilers and rail tracks. Today it is a luxury hotel owned by Roberto Hernández.
