Sac Nicte is a privately-owned compound in Chunkanan, a Mayan village deep in the heart of the Yucatan, Mexico. Only 50 km SE from the capital city of Merida, but a life-time away in culture and pace of life, Sac Nicte has three mayan-style cottages with palapa roofs, set in an acre of private tropical gardens, with a large swimming pool filled with well water supplied by a traditional windmill. The three cottages or cabanas are rented together as a unit, offering accommodation for up to six guests, sleeping in hammocks in the traditional mayan way. Ideally suited for four guests, for an extra cost it is possible to hang two extra hammocks. Enjoy the slow pace of life, see the wonderful variety of colourful tropical birds from the comfort of your cottage, and at night admire the magnificent night skies.


Description of Interior

There are three cottages at Sac Nicte. The main house has a fully equipped kitchenette and dining area, and space to hang two hammocks. The bedroom house has space for two hammocks, and the bathroom house has hot running water. Two extra hammocks can be hung according to the needs of the guests. Fitted out with elegant rustic simplicity, Sac Nicte has everything you need for light cooking, a dining area, and comfortable deck chairs for sitting out on the terrace by the pool.


Garden and Exterior

Sac Nicte's three cottages are set in an acre of tropical gardens, with colourful plants and exotic fruit trees. The large lap pool is filled with sparkling well water supplied by a traditional windmill. There is a barbecue area, and a place where you can build a fire and sit out under the stars. A sacred circular space has been cleared, and blessed by the local shaman, and is used for mayan ceremonies. While you stay at Sac Nicte, you could have your own private mayan ceremony - a wedding or renewal of vows, a spiritual cleansing or healing ceremony, or attract love, success, health, etc. - with a genuine, fully accredited mayan shaman.

Local Area

Slightly set back from the centre of the village, Sac Nicte is within a few minutes walk of the starting point to visit the famous Three Cenotes of Cuzama. A cenote is a sacred underground mayan lake, and the cenotes of Cuzama are among the most beautiful in the Yucatan. Only accessible by horse-drawn truck on old railway lines, it is an adventure not to be missed. An opportunity only available to those who stay at Sac Nicte, is to go to the cenotes at night. There are other beautiful cenotes at the nearby villages of Homun and Sabacche, and the mayan ruins of Mayapan and Acanceh are within an easy drive.
