Our guide Juan was amazing. His explanation of the history and his knowledge of the Havienda and of their making of rope and other items was exceptional. Out trip to the Cenote by mule driven wagons was quite adventure. I want to go back again.

Brilliantly choreographed and put together this creates a context to the Yucatan and Merida, Sisal and Progreso. This is, apparently, the only place left in the Yucatan that grows, processes and sells sisal or henequen. The machinery is antique, huge and incredible. Our guide was...More

If you don't want to do the morning tour nor rent a car, I would take beachbums advise and hire a car and driver. There are online car hire sites for Merida and where you are staying should be able to help. The hotel may... More
