Step back in time on a tour of Hacienda Sotuta de Peon, an 18th century agave plant estate. The farm is still functional, having been restored in the 1980s, and is dedicated to promoting sustainability. More than 80 Mayan families work on the farm. Explore the main house to see how a rich agave plantation owner used to live, ride on wooden platform trucks and admire the spacious estate, and see first-hand the process of transforming the plant into ropes, sacks, and yarn. After the tour, you can bathe in the crystal clear waters of the natural underground cenotes, or enjoy traditional Mexican cuisine at the restaurant. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Merida holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Hacienda Sotuta de Peon and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

There is a cenote where you enjoy swimming, it is not spectacular, but nothing very rich, outside they sell some very good margaritas in the truck of the Bar, the food in the restaurant good, not extraordinary, a special thing happens to you with a Mr. who I think is called Don Antonio of 86 years looks bigger, but it has a great story to tell you and a big smile to give you.
