From Mérida: Hacienda Sotuta de Peón, Henequen & Cenote Tour

2. From Mérida: Hacienda Sotuta de Peón, Henequen & Cenote Tour

Discover the charming and historical Hacienda Sotuta de Peón on a tour from Mérida by van. Visit the hacienda's grounds, henequen agave fields on a mule drawn cart and learn about its production before seeing and swimming in a cenote with turquoise waters. Leave Mérida behind and immerse yourself in Mexican culture with a visit to the Hacienda Sotuta de Peón. Surrounded by lush gardens, steeped in culture and history, a visit to this hacienda will transport you to back the 19th century. Meet locals at the hacienda and learn why henequen — a form of agave — was called the "green gold" in olden times. Thanks to this green plant, the region of Yucatan became a very rich state. Next, explore the surroundings of the henequen fields with a visit to the hacienda's main house and machine room. Learn about the process of henequen scraping, manual corking, and the laying of fibre. Finally, take a ride in a cart pulled by mules, passing through La Casa Maya and the henequen fields. The cherry on top of this tour is a visit to one of Mexico's natural underground oases — a cenote. Swim in its crystal clear waters to cool off or merely soak up the natural cave formation from the platform. Tuck into local regional snacks at the main restaurant and enjoy some free time to discover parts of the hacienda at your own pace before heading back to Mérida.

Superb day with our great guide Jorge who speaks Spanish, English and French. The visit to the magnificent site of Uxmal really seduced us in comparison to Chichen Itza (made with another agency) and Jorge's explanations were very rich and well distributed during the visit! The Sotatu de Péon hacienda is very beautiful and far from the tourist crowds that we had encountered previously. We particularly appreciated the demonstration of the process of transforming Sisal into fibre, using the original machines. To end this day in style, we went by small train pulled by horses to the private cenote of the estate and there were only 2 of us in the water! The cenote is entirely underground and by far the one I enjoyed the most during our stay in the Yucatan. We are unanimous in saying that this day is the most beautiful of our 15 days of visit and we highly recommend this excursion with Jorge!

La mejor actividad de Mérida. Visitamos Uxmal, un sitio arqueológico en plena reconstrucción. El guia fue majestuoso y pudo explicarnos a detalles de forma inmersiva la cultura Maya en la zona llamda "Ruta Puuc". La hacienda Sotuta magnífica. Un vestigio de nuestra historia y la comida deliciosa. Lo recomiendo. The best activity from Merida. We visited Uxmal, an archaeological site in full reconstruction. The guide was majestic and was able to explain to us in detail in an immersive way the Mayan culture in the area called "Ruta Puuc". The magnificent Sotuta Hacienda. A vestige of our history and delicious food. I recommend it.
