Absolutely loved everything about this Hacienda. Two story lodges (I was on the upper story) set in beautiful surroundings, food and service - faultless! This Hacienda has a working museum producing henequen (sizal) for rope / rug making etc. The tour of the henequen is...More
I really enjoyed the Hacienda Sotuta de Peon. I took the English tour and our tour guide (Ian?) spoke perfectly and made the history of the hacienda come alive. We were able to meet with Don Antonio, the old gentleman who has lived there for...More
My very close friend and I toured the hacienda today after much discussion about how to travel there. Not knowing how we would get home, we decided to Uber and throw caution to the wind. My friend assured me that the staff at Hacienda Sotuta...More
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.

I believe so. However, you may not get to see the active process of making the rope. Also, I am not sure if you can visit the cenote or the oldest keeper of the grounds (who speaks only the local native language, not Spanish) unaccompanied.
I highly recommend the tour. It is not expensive and you learn alot about the industry, history, and how the Hacienda is maintaining itself and contributing to the local people.
