What a wonderful day out. We all loved it. You get a tour of the Hacienda and information on rope making. A beautifully refreshing swim in an underground cenote. The restaurant served amazing food. We will certainly go back!

The best yucatan culture bundle. A real great mantained ancient hacienda, a very old real production machinery of henequen (the green gold) or sisal, working as if you were in the late 1800's. A "mini train" called "truk" pulled by a mule and they take you to: A "mayan house" not a real one but pretty near of a real... More

If you are interested in history of Yucatan haciendas, then this is the one to visit. Very informativ and educatinaol. Also nice for children, because of the horse drawn car and the Cenote which is included of the 3 hour tour. About 1 hour from Izamal and 30 minutes from Uxmal

The tour of this Hacienda was very interesting and they've put a lot into making it a holistic experience of the fabric trade. The cenote at the end is lovely and a great way to end the tour. Didn't stay overnight but there were some free-standing bungalows that looked like a great quiet getaway.

My family of four (kids ages 7 and 10 and 2 adults) had a great time on this tour. The guide gave the tour in both English and Spanish. He kept our kids interested and had them brushing/whacking, spinning and touching the plant and the machinery. He even gave them the examples of the rope they spun. Our oldest child... More

It took us a lot of time to get there but it was worth it. The buffet was extremely good!! The bathrooms weren't good but it is sort of what you expect in a rustic place. The staff was really helpful and warm

Fascinating guided tour of old henequen plantation still producing rope and other products. One hour spent in their cenote was alone worth the trip to Merida.

During mexican revolution the haciendas were abandoned and began to deteriorate rapidly due the weather in Yucatan Peninsula, although some years ago, some were reconstructed to benefit... More

We enjoyed this tour immensely! Our guide was knowledgeable and spoke in both english and Spanish so that the entire group was kept informed. We learned a lot about the history of the area, henequen, and the colonial lifestyle. We ate at the onsite buffet and the food was delicious and plentiful. The cenote on the property is just beautiful... More
