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

Excellent tour, guides are available in French, English and Spanish. It was very informative. The cenote was an excellent way to cool down on a hot day.
