to the Hacienda Sotuta de Peón
Built at the end of the 19th century in Tecoh, Yucatan. Join us on this interesting journey to the past while enjoying the highlights of the hacienda in this tour of Sotuta de Peón.
Sotuta de Peón, Hacienda Viva , is the restoration project of a historic monument located in the heart of the old henequen area of the state of Yucatan, and gives you a real idea of what was once a fully operational Hacienda Henequenera, in the lavish style and true traditions of this period.
When they walk through Sotuta de Peón, our visitors literally travel in time, transported on wooden platforms called "Truks" which are pulled by "mules" on rails of Decauville, as originally used by the workers.
Here, you will be able to witness every step of the transformation process of Henequen (also called Green Gold in this region), from the plant to the fiber, and from the fiber to the finished product. You will also have the opportunity to see the old machinery that has been rescued from the ravages of time and rebuilt to its precise operative capacity. Your walk will also include a visit to a typical Mayan House.
And add to this the unique geological formations of our secret attractions, the cenotes, beautiful rivers of crystalline and alkaline waters, very coveted. Take a moment to take a refreshing dip at the end of your walk, where you can swim with great safety in the refreshing waters of the Cenote. Or, if you prefer, we have a huge pool, surrounded by lush tropical flower gardens and trees and native plants of spectacular green.
