Sac Nicté, a unique opportunity to rent traditional mayan cottages in the heart of the Yucatan.
Sac Nicté - Unique Mayan Village Rental.
Where else can you stay in a traditional Mayan village, visit cenotes (sacred underground lakes) by a horse-drawn truck, experience your own private Mayan ceremony, sleep in a hammock, and taste delicious traditional Mayan dishes prepared on an open fire?
Deep in the heart of the Yucatan you can experience a Mexican Vacation with a difference. Far from the noise and pollution of the city, you can breathe the clean air, and hear the sounds of the countryside - birdsong, the animals which live in the typical Mayan village - and at night, the stars shine brilliantly in the clear skies.
Sac Nicté is a large compound, secluded but close to the centre of the village, and has three Mayan-style cottages with palapa roofs. The private compound has a large swimming pool, fed by water drawn up from a deep well by a traditional windmill. The three cottages are surrounded by luxurious tropical gardens with exotic fruit trees and tropical flowers.
To stay at Sac Nicté is a unique experience - an opportunity to have a truly memorable Yucatan vacation. Sleeping four, it is ideal for a small family, or one or two couples traveling in the Yucatan. Perfectly located for visiting the cenotes (sacred underground Mayan lakes). It is also within easy driving distance to the archaeological sites of Mayapán and Acancéh.
Only 50km southeast of Merida, the capital of the Yucatán, but a world away in terms of pace of life, culture, and nature.
Included in the rental is the exclusive use of an acre of tropical gardens, a large swimming pool, and three Mayan-style cottages rented together as a secure and safe holiday environment.

Late-night cenote trip
Book your late-night private trip with Don Santiago to the cenotes by moonlight.
Acancéh, with its amazing pyramid right in the centre of the town, is a 30-minute drive away. And Mayapan, the huge and fascinating site was the last great Maya capital, is also within easy driving distance. Both are well worth the journey, and Mayapan has very few tourists so you can visit at your leisure and appreciate the grandeur of the Mayans in their heyday.
Cenotes are sacred underground Mayan lakes.
Chunkanan is in the centre of an important cenote zone. Stay at Sac Nicté and easily visit nearby cenotes at Chunkanán, Cuzamá, Homún and Sabacché.
There is a local saying "once you have swum in a mayan cenote, you will have to return"
