Day 4 Private tour of Hacienda de Sotuta de Peon for an Authentic Henequen Production Tour (B & L)

 You will be met at your hotel at 9:00 am and be driven to Hacienda Sotuta de Peon (65km, 1:15 mins). Set amongst vast acres of gardens and agave plantations, this hacienda dating back to 1858, describes itself as a ‘live hacienda’.  Your private guide will take you on a journey through the history of Mérida’s haciendas that produced henequen, a strong fibre derived from the agave plant, known at the time as green gold since it was so lucrative.

Take a tour around the rooms of the hacienda with its Italian tiled floors and imported period furniture that was only lived in at the weekend by the owners, who would spend their weeks in Mérida city.  You will walk through the various stages of history to see how henequen was produced through arduous manual work before the industrial revolution in Europe, at which time machines were imported to Mexico, making the work much easier. You will also learn about the dark history of the haciendas that virtually enslaved their Maya workers, forcing them to work long hours and paying them in money that could only be spent within the hacienda.

Enjoy a private ride on a mule-drawn ‘truck’ and journey through the acres of agave plantation towards the natural cenote (ancient sinkhole) that sits within the hacienda grounds.  You will have a chance to swim in the easily accessible cenote that is 20-meter’s deep and has lights under the water, making it safer for swimmers. Afterwards, enjoy lunch at the haciendas restaurant before heading back to your hotel in Merida.
