          Mr. Pascual Rivero Gamboa built the Hacienda Kancabchen (pozo de tierra roja) in 1921, which is located just 15 minutes from the colonial city of Merida in the state of the Yucatan.
          This beautiful colonial-style hacienda was created with the target to engage in farming and the prodcution of sisal (the plant of henequen), but due to teh gradual disappearance of the industry of sisal, Mr. Rivero Gamboa inherited the property to her daughter, Mrs. Josefina Gamboa Casares, who had owned until 1985.
          From this date, the Ponce Garcia family bought it, to enable a dairy farm and a place for recreation and relaxation.
