You would not want to miss the large plantation or estates in Mexico. Sometimes, these haciendas can be a mine or even business factories which originated from land grants made to conquistadors who used to be soldiers, adventurers, explorers at the Portuguese or Spanish Empires. Conquistadors had sailed beyond Europe, opening trade routes and conquering territory. In Mexico, there are several featured haciendas and some historic hotels including the Hotel Chichen Yaxkin Spa, the Hotel Hacienda San Antonio El Puente, Hotel Hacienda Cocyoc, Hacienda de Cortes, Hacienda de San Antonio, Casa de Sierra Nevada and Posada Coatepec.

This historic significance can be mentioned from the 19th century for Posada Coatepec. Don Justo Fernandez Gonzalez de la Vega had chosen this spot for coffee production. He soon got married and Justo Felix Fernandez Lopez inherited this house which has  three adjoining properties. One of which is the warehouse and the offices, the other is the production plant. They expanded and moved to Xalapa, this bigger space. It was passed down to Justo Fernandez Avila who remodeled and converted this property to a hotel. It retained the original style with patios, arches and interior gardens. Hence if you go there today, you still can capture the original ambience of the place.
