Live the real hacienda experience, just 45 minutes from Merida!
Sotuta de Peón, Live Hacienda, is the restoration project of a landmark located in the heart of the ancient henequén zone in 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.
Our guided tour operates from Monday to Sunday, at 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM (Spanish, English or French). Adult $470 MXN and Children (4 to 12 years) $235 MXN.
While we have invited you to lose yourself for a day in the past, to let yourself be carried away by the sights and the sounds and the architecture which make up our ‘live hacienda’, we know your visit and time with us will be equally remembered once you have visited our Yucatan style restaurant.
We are confident that after more than thirty years of hospitality, Sotuta de Peón will leave you amazed by the uniqueness of food selection and the attention we pay to the service standards as well.
Just about everyone who dines with us, be it in a larger group, family or individual setting, agrees that the charm and sincerity of our friendly service team is equaled only by the highly local Yucatan created dishes and recipes.
So please do come for the tour, stay for lunch and fall in love with real country service.
Hacienda Sotuta de Peon is also the best option for those who wish to escape to an unique, classy, stylish and natural hotel that gives you an experience of relaxation, combined with the opportunity to get in direct contact with nature, tropical gardens, magnificent henequen plantations or simply, an experience of peace and tranquility.
