An interesting place to visit! It is a functional early 1900s sisal twine and rope manufacturing facility. More a museum of growing of the agave, harvesting and manufacture of twine.
A fine lunch and dinner is available.
Great place to visit, they show you around the machinery to make the ropes, they take you around the main house (back in the day). The staff is friendly. Cheap tour (MXN 550) so about USD 25-30. After touring the factory and grounds, they take...More

I believe so. However, you may not get to see the active process of making the rope. Also, I am not sure if you can visit the cenote or the oldest keeper of the grounds (who speaks only the local native language, not... More
I believe so. However, you may not get to see the active process of making the rope. Also, I am not sure if you can visit the cenote or the oldest keeper of the grounds (who speaks only the local native language, not Spanish) unaccompanied.
I highly recommend the tour. It is not expensive and you learn alot about the industry, history, and how the Hacienda is maintaining itself and contributing to the local people.

If you don't want to do the morning tour nor rent a car, I would take beachbums advise and hire a car and driver. There are online car hire sites for Merida and where you are staying should be able to help. The hotel may also be able to help you make up the required 4 persons for the afternoon tour. Don't miss the cenote.
