Mérida meeting shines spotlight on haciendas as tourism resource

Share This

MERIDA, YUC. — About 90 of Mexico’s most prominent landowners — owners of historic haciendas from various regions — are gathered in Merida this week for a conference aimed at helping to generate income from their properties.

The three-day Convention of Mexican Hacienda Owners concluded today Tuesday Nov. 28 at Hacienda Misné in Merida with participants’ visiting many of Yucatan’s other restored haciendas for familiarization and networking.

That the meeting of these prominent property owners would be held at a Merida hacienda highlights the recent emergence of the White City as a center of high-level national meetings and conventions.

It also shines a spotlight on the importance of preserving and developing Yucatan’s own hacienda resources — especially those located in rural areas — as a means of promoting Yucatan’s tourism economy, generating jobs and prospering.
