Our tour of Hacienda Sotuta de Peon was very interesting. Our guide was very entertaining and we learned a lot about the history and way of life in the haciendas in Mexico in the 19th and first part of the 20th Century. The Mayan caballero that talked to us about his life in the hacienda was something not to be... More

Great tour of a farm that features Henequen. This plant is from the Agave family. They make rope with it! The property is beautiful and we went swimming in a centre there and also had a scrumptious lunch.

Hacienda Sotuta de Peon is a great day trip from Merida that gives you a taste of the grandeur of a hacienda, a history lesson, a wonderful swim in a magical cenote and a charming restaurant overlooking the hacienda grounds. My favorite part was the cenote, so take your bathing suit. The brochures don't chow much of the hacienda itself,... More

My 4 year old and I arrived 1.5 hours early. We ate lunch and swam in the pool. Once the tour started, we enjoyed the hibiscus juice and house. The cart pulled by a donkey was a fun reprieve for my son. We loved the cenote. We spent about 40 minutes in the water. Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming.

I've been three times at Hacienda Sotute de Peon and twice at Cuzama and definitively prefer Sotuta. At the Cuzama cenotes, you have a 15 minute bumpy ride between each cenote and can only stay 20 minutes in each cenote. Avoid weekends if you decide to go there any way because you'il be waiting an hour or so before beginning.... More

Fascinating journey back in time with Henequin or Sisal production. The guide was charming and the ceynote was an added bonus

Beautiful Hacienda & very interesting. Lovely day spent learning history with friends. Cenote was very nice. It was great meeting the sweet Mayan gentleman at Mayan house. We had a wonderful lunch--more like a dinner--enjoyed by all.

It was made quite clear to us that this is not a working hacienda, but a working museum. Sisal production is no longer financially viable in Mexico. However, so that all links to the industry are not lost, the museum was set up. Very interesting to learn a little about all aspects of life and to see the mechanised production.... More

A fun and informative visit. Our bilingual guide was quite well informed. This is a working henequin hacienda or plantation. We got to spend our hour swimming and lounging around a cenote.

Traveling to this Hacienda is unlike any other visit to any Hacienda. This is a working Hacienda where you will have the opportunity to see people hard at work, they will guide you through the mansion and will end the visit refreshing yourself in the Haciendas own Cenote
