Event venue known for music festivals, but also available for weddings.

Hacienda Chichí Suárez was founded by a Spanish conquistador, owned by the grandson of the founder of Mérida and at least two governors of the state of Yucatán. The home is one of the oldest structures in Mérida.

The hacienda was founded in the sixteenth century by the conquistador Alonso de Rosado and is one of oldest farms in Yucatán. The property changed ownership several times but was eventually sold by Catarina de Andrade to the grandson of Francisco de Montejo the Younger, Juan de Montejo Maldonado. He sold it in 1640 to Antonio de Figueroa y Silva Lasso de la Vega Ladrón del Niño de Guevara the liberator of what is now Belize from England and Governor of Yucatán.

In 1919, another Yucatecan governor, Olegario Molina acquired the property which was called Santa María Chichí at that time. The property changed hands several times after 1922 and in 1948 was acquired by Víctor Suárez Molina, who renamed it Hacienda Chichí Suárez. In 1953, he sold the property to Omar G. Díaz y Díaz.

Today, Hacienda Chichí Suárez is rented for private parties, festivals, tours and photography sessions.
