The Hacienda Uayamon is located on the Yucatan peninsula, 16 miles (26 kilometers) from Campeche airport. Hidden in a zone whose cultural wealth is comparable only with its natural attractions, the hacienda Uayamon offers not only an ideal place for resting, but also the possibility of visiting fascinating Maya ruins and Arquelogical sites.
The villas and suites located, in what have been former employee accommodations for the elite of the hacienda staff, have been fully restored and adapted to the hotel needs. A specific restoration project had been developed to express its particular architectonic personality by conserving the same spirit that its former and original owners gave to it. Thus, in some cases, the restoration of buildings brings together both contemporary and traditional aspects and the new spaces and elements serve above all to highlight the artistic and architectonic value of the haciendas original features. The interior design of the guestrooms and public areas was done by the well know Indonesian Arquitect Jaya Ibrahim giving this hacienda it’s very unique touch. Of course you will find in this hacienda as well the bulbous pegs set into the stone walls for hanging the woven cotton hammocks, for which Campeche is famous, to allow our guests sleep in the Mayan Style.

The State of Campeche was long part of Yucatan (it broke away on August 7, 1857) and shared it’s culinary history through the mid 19th century. Therefore the culinary delights of a typical Campechean kitchen come from the same mouth watering mixture of European and Mexican flavors as the “Yucatecan Cuisine”. A bit of history will explain this strong European influence. Once upon a time the Yucatecan peninsula was considered to be too far away and too difficult to reach from the rest of Mexico. Mountainous terrain and very poor roads kept the peninsula isolated. Having ports (Campeche was the principle port of Yucatan until well into the 19th century) with commercial and cultural contacts with Europe, (especially France), New Orleans, Cuba and Arab immigrants, the Campechanos were easily influenced by many aspects of these countries and cultures, such as dress, architecture and cooking, which explains why there is a lot of European flare in its cuisine.
Much of the ingredientes used in the menu is organic and comes from the gardens of any of the other haciendas of the group. Fresh-baked bread is “made at the hacienda” and the extremely fresh fish is broad in daily by the local fishermen you can find all along the main boulevard at the seaport of the city of Campeche.
Ingredients first used by the Maya include corn, beans, tomatoes, chiles, squash, chaya (a Spinach-like plant), avocado and achiote (annatto). The Spaniards introduced citrus fruit-limes and Seville oranges feature in many dishes, chicken, beef, dairy products, coriander, garlic, olives, oregano and rice. Pork, chicken and turkey are widely used in Yucatecan recipes, usually in conjunction with “recados”, which may contain “achiote”, Seville orange juice, pepper and chiles.
