After our serene, but hot, exploration of the Oxkintoc Runis (15Ks east of Maxcanu off Rt 180 from Merida), we were dying to find a place where we could get some cold drinks and good food. On a lark, we headed west toward Hotel Hacienda Santa Rosa. What a find! This place was in the middle of nowhere, but beautiful! We were told that it is one of the smallest Haciendas on the Yucatan, but this did not seem to affect the service or the quality of our meal. We enjoyed a delightful meal on an open patio surrounded by a well manicured little jungle.
