Welcome to the Hacienda Sotuta de Peón, built in
the late 1800`s in Tecoh, Yucatán. Join us on this interesting journey
to the past as we experience the highlights of the hacienda on this tour
of Sotuta de Peón.
Sotuta de Peón, Live Hacienda, is the restoration project of a landmark
located in the heart of the ancient henequén zone in the Yucatan state,
and gives a true glimpse of what was once a fully operational Henequen Hacienda
in the grand style and tradition of this period.
When touring Sotuta de Peon, our visitors will literally travel back in
time, transported on wooden platforms called "Trucks" which are
pulled by ‘mules’ over Cauville rails, as were originally used
by the workers.
Here, you will witness the step-by-step process of the transformation of
the Henequen (or Green Gold as it was known throughout the region), from
plant to fiber and from fiber to finished product.
You will also have the opportunity to see the antique machinery that has
been rescued from the ravages of time and rebuilt to precise operational
capacity. Your tour will also include a visit to a typical Mayan House.
And add to this the unique geological formations of our secret attractions,
the Cenote or beautiful underground rivers of crystal clear water, highly
sought after, alkaline waters. Take the time for a refreshing swim at the
end of your tour, where you can safely swim in the cool waters of the Cenote.
Or, if you prefer, we have a huge swimming pool, surrounded by lush gardens
of tropical flowers and brilliant green trees and indigenous plants.
