First day peek Chable Resort in Merida. Initially, the weather chart noting temps of 90’s and 70% humidity cast a dark cloud; however, with a plunge pool, siestas and cooling breezes, I am quite comfortable at Chable Resort!
Soothing repetitive cooing from the pigeons and doves (Mucuy in Maya), and the jungle filled tropical bird song of cardinals and chattering black birds, provide for a very wild, yet civilized stay, all is muy Bueno at Chable!
Chable Resort was built upon the skeleton of an ancient Hacienda; the main building, small chapel, engine house and various other out buildings were once a successful Hacienda owned by a hemp Patron. Imagine these beautiful buildings spread across acres of vast expanses of lawn, magnificent massive trees, flowering fragrant shrubs – all brimming with wild birds. The old cultivated fields of hemp producing agriculture are now a tangle of wild jungle dotted with white block and glass villas, each a secluded oasis – this is not your typical Mexico!
Photos of the ancient buildings – modern glass and stone villas coming…and on the spa, divine cuisine, off property excursions to Mayan ruins…the perfect juxtaposition of ancient cultures, modern amenities and comfort, traditional shamanic healing spa located on the banks of a massive cenote.
