Most of the ingredients are sourced from onsite organic gardens. An impressive wine cellar brings the best bottles to your table and also to the two bars that are located inside the estate. Guests have use of a billiards room, a fitness center, a running track and ping pong tables. The grounds feature a six-hole golf course. The onsite spa offers massages, aromatherapy and detoxifying steam treatments. The treatment menu includes wine or mud baths and fruit, flower or herbal wraps meant to exfoliate skin and bring an impenetrable sense of relaxation. Special events can be hosted at Hacienda el Carmen. There are several different event spaces. Three smaller rooms can host between 25-30 people for a banquet or conference.
