Hacienda Petac, Petac $$$$
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:A seventeenth-century sisal plantation built atop Mayan ruins, the Hacienda Petac ("House of the Turtle Catcher") has been transformed into a stylish five-bedroom, 80-acre estate available only if booked in its entirety. The weekly rate includes all the essentials, plus guided excursions to nearby archaeological sites, Mexican cooking classes, bird-watching treks, evening lectures, and sunset serenades by mariachi band Los Tres Yucatecos, a local favorite. Massages are additional but priceless. All five suites boast 30-foot ceilings, period furnishings, and hand-painted floor tiles. The service is unobtrusive and flawless.2005 Hot List
