Hacienda Sotuta de Peón, built in the late 1800`s in Tecoh, Yucatan.
Join us on this interesting journey back in time as we experience the highlights of the hacienda on this tour to Sotuta de Peón. La Hacienda Viva, is the restoration project of a landmark located in the heart of the old henequen area in the State of Yucatan and gives a true ideal of what was once a Henequen the hacienda is operating in the great style and tradition of this period.
When touring Sotuta de Peón, our visitors will literally travel back in time, transported on wooden platforms called "Trucks" that are pulled by 'mules' on rails, as they were originally used by the workers.
In this case, you will witness the step-by-step process of transforming Henequen (or green gold, as it was known throughout the region), from plant to fiber and from fiber to the finished product.
You will also have the opportunity to see old machinery that has been rescued from the ravages of time and rebuilt to precise operating capacity. On the other hand, the tour includes a visit to a typical Mayan House.
Next, visit the unique geological formations of our secret places, the Cenote or beautiful underground rivers of crystalline water, much sought after, alkaline waters.
Take a moment to cool off with a swim at the end of your tour, where you can safely swim in the cold waters of the Cenote. Or, if you prefer, we have a huge pool surrounded by lush tropical flower gardens, bright green trees, and indigenous plants.
