Hacienda Yaxcopoil is part of the Hacienda Route south of Merida and is also on the Puuc Route, Convent Route and in the middle of the Mayan World or Mundo Maya. This is an excellent location as a base for exploring the Yucatan or for a casual visit during a longer road trip. The Hacienda is located about 22 kilometers or 14 miles (30 minutes) south of Merida, the capital of Yucatan State, on Federal Highway 261, at Kilometer 220.
Use any major southbound street, such as the Avenida Itzaes, until you arrive at the Periferico, or beltway, that surrounds Merida. Proceed to exit N° 1 to Federal Highway 180 South to Campeche-Uxmal, near the airport. About 12 kilometers from Merida, take the exit on Federal Highway 261 South to Chetumal-Uxmal and the Puuc Route. Follow the signs to Uxmal on 261 for about 10 kilometers to arrive at Hacienda Yaxcopoil.

It will stop directly across from the entrance to Hacienda Yaxcopoil.
