Hacienda Sotuta de Peon, Merida

(4.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Step back in time on a tour of Hacienda Sotuta de Peon, an 18th century agave plant estate. The farm is still functional, having been restored in the 1980s, and is dedicated to promoting sustainability. More than 80 Mayan families work on the farm. Explore the main house to see how a rich agave plantation owner used to live, ride on wooden platform trucks and admire the spacious estate, and see first-hand the process of transforming the plant into ropes, sacks, and yarn. After the tour, you can bathe in the crystal clear waters of the natural underground cenotes, or enjoy traditional Mexican cuisine at the restaurant.

  • If you want to delve into a walk where return to the life of years ago when I lived the sisal, be sure to visit them. The guides are excellent, it is a beautiful Hacienda where also you can stay and eat. They have a beautiful cenote where you can immerse yourself to forget a little bit of heat. Not to be missed if you're coming to Mérida.

  • A walk almost compelled to learn more about the history of the haciendas in Yucatán, and if you travel with a few days to explore cenotes and haciendas this walk offers everything a little, a Treasury, a cenote, history of the henequen, ride on truck by a June field and Yucatecan to finish. It also has a hotel with very nice and comfortable rooms, some with private pool

  • I went with my boyfriend. We made the reservation via internet $550 each. Only included the Tour with guide. We arrived very early by lq tomorrow. Starts the tour with a little history of the hacienda. Then teach you as you did the sodzkiles. You go through where is fragile henequen and spinning machine. Then take you to the cenote, very nice by the way. All this in a truck pulled by a horse.

  • culture, relax, nice food, all in a Amazing place. the best near Merida.
  • Great place where you back in time at the beginning of the 20th century! Henequen or sisal is the main actor of this work. It's not cheap at all but at the end it is worthwhile.
