Interested in learning what life on a hacienda was like? Then you must visit Hacienda Sotuta de Peon located about an hour and a half drive from Telchac Puerto, just south of Merida.
Your tour begins with a visit to the beautifully restored hacienda. Next you will visit the henequen processing plant and see the process of turning henequen into rope from beginning to final product.
The next phase of the tour finds you on a “truck”, a large cart, being pulled along narrow gage tracks by a donkey. You travel past the newly completed hotel buildings and henequen fields until you reach your first stop, an authentic Mayan house, where Don Antonio talks to visitors about Mayan customs and traditions as well as life on the hacienda.
Next stop is the beautiful Dzul-Ha cenote. You can purchase a cool drink before entering the underground cave. The large, crystal clear cenote is one of the most beautiful we’ve seen. There are change facilities, goggles and life jackets available so come prepared for a swim!
Finally, it’s back to the main grounds where you will be dropped off at the on-site restaurant where we enjoyed a tasty Yucatecan meal.
This is a wonderful tour. The guides are excellent and knowledgeable, the grounds well kept and the ambience perfect!
