Hacienda El Carmen is committed to our history and to the traditions of Mexico.
Located in the UNESCO designated World Heritage Cultural Landscape the "Agave Landscape" is located just 68 km from the city of Guadalajara, in the municipality of Ahualulco. The "hacienda", is a villa built in the seventeenth century by Carmelite monks who were producing food products to sustain their evangelistic work in the Valley of Atemajac. In mid-twentieth century the hacienda was acquired by a family from Jalisco devoted to refurbishing the historic building and continuing the traditonal agricultural work on the property.
It was opened as a hotel in 2001. It offers a place of leisure and relaxation to visitors, taking advantage of the mild climate, geographic location, facilities and XX1st Century comforts.
