I really enjoyed the Hacienda Sotuta de Peon. I took the English tour and our tour guide (Ian?) spoke perfectly and made the history of the hacienda come alive. We were able to meet with Don Antonio, the old gentleman who has lived there for...More
My very close friend and I toured the hacienda today after much discussion about how to travel there. Not knowing how we would get home, we decided to Uber and throw caution to the wind. My friend assured me that the staff at Hacienda Sotuta...More
Very nice hacienda only 45 min from Mérida. This is one of the very few haciendas that are in function. We had an English speaking guide - very good. We ended the tour with a visit to the Cenote that was on the property.
It's pricey, but worth it. Sotuta de Peon was a grand hacienda in its glory days, and now it is a well-preserved hacienda that still produces hennequen while it educates visitors about the history of the industry in Yucatan. Great restaurant on site.

The hennequin industry is very interesting to learn about. We arrived late and missed the whole production end of the tour, but still enjoyed ourselves. The tour groups are small (20-ish people) and we all sat on the wagon cart on rails, which was fun...More

I believe so. However, you may not get to see the active process of making the rope. Also, I am not sure if you can visit the cenote or the oldest keeper of the grounds (who speaks only the local native language, not Spanish) unaccompanied.
I highly recommend the tour. It is not expensive and you learn alot about the industry, history, and how the Hacienda is maintaining itself and contributing to the local people.
