Authentic is probably the best way to describe your vacation at Hacienda San Jose in the Yucatan Peninsula. The luxury hotel itself was a colonial estate where sugar cane, then a fiber for sisal rugs, was farmed. Now, an organic farm supplies the restaurant’s fresh produce and the spa’s traditional treatments. Mexican healers even offer prayers as they use massage techniques passed down through their Mayan lineage.
