Hacienda Sotuta de Peon, Merida
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.

It is a bit expensive but worth it, great tour and place to visit. Tours are only at 10 and 1 this time of year. You can visit the chapel and gardens, we were early and needed to kill some time. Changing for the Cenote, swimming cavern, in advance is recommended. There are English and Spanish tours.
Amazing! Highly recommend and also commend those who have salvaged this facinating and important part of Yucatan culture. The tour was 5 stars and quite reasonable and topped off with swim in a cenote and magaritas.
