This trip includes quality presentation by the guide, beautifully restored hacienda and excellent learning experience about history of henequen/sisal in Yucatan. The cenote swim is one of the best we had here. Did not eat at the restaurant so cannot comment. Money well spent.

It's a long drive on a small road to reach this lovely restored hacienda. If you're not comfortable driving in Mexico it might be good to take the offered transportation. Once you get there you will be delighted to learn from a VERY outspoken english speaking guide all about the hacienda itself and the history of heneken or sisal. For... More

Really enjoyed the tour and history lesson about the hacienda and henequen industry. The cenote by donkey cart at the end of the tour really hits the spot. Very cave like, fun and refreshing with a bar located at the entrance. The price is a little steep but well worth it

This tour is really in three parts; the hacienda itself, the henequen operations, and the cenotes. All very enjoyable.

This makes for a really nice outing at a reasonable price. We enjoyed learning about henequen, loved the cenote, and were pleasantly surprised by the good food. Only con: the van could use some new seatbelts. Still, highly recommended.

When we see the comments on Tripadvisor for this activity, my friends and I were quite doubtful about the popularity since this area locate far away from any cities. After we visited by ourselves, I have to say it is definitely worth it. The history to extract the fibers from the plants to make ropes is really interesting. But the... More

We weren't sure if we were THAT interested in learning about hen equip production, but we were so glad we went. It was so interesting learning how the industrialization of this production really led to the incredible wealth Merida experienced. The grounds were beautiful and being able to combine the trip with a swim stop at the denote was a... More

As a boy on the farm I loved the smell of the binder twine used to tie up bales. This visit shows where the hennequen (Agave fourcroydes) was and is processed into that twine and rope. The guide Juan gave us a history and perspective of the industry and the evolution of methods used to harvest and process the raw... More

We went based on the tripadvisor reviews and for the most part it lived up to the hype, however, the tour was a bit long for our 2 young kids (7 and 5). That's not the hacienda's fault, I just want to let others know. Kids 10 and up will probably like it. It takes a little longer because the... More
