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

1. 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.
