We took a one-day tour to Sotuta de Peon. The hacienda is beautifully decorated with furniture of its splendor days and the demonstration of the process to transform raw henequen (the green gold) to rope using the machines from that time is very illustrative. There...More

It was a good place to visit and it was nice to walk around to see the structures. Worth the visit when you're in Merida

Hacienda Sotuta de Peon, a working henequen (sisal) farm and rope production plant since the 19th century, provides an interesting, informative tour through the main house, the factory buildings (with demonstrations as the work process unfolds), and into the henequen fields on mule-drawn wagons and...More

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... More
