Getting to know Hacienda Sotuta de Peon

Sotuta de Peon is the only working hacienda left in the Yucatan, still growing, processing and selling henequen, a product of the agave plant used in making rope. For centuries, Mayan artisans made and exported henequen rope around the world. Sotuta de Peon’s antique machinery is massive and extraordinary witness to the technological innovations of the last century.

Our All-inclusive Visit

Victory guests will tour the estate and visit a reproduction of a Mayan house on the property. We will meet Don Antonio, an 82-year-old resident of the plantation, who will share his story of his life working on the plantation. Afterwards, a luncheon is served on the terrace of the main house.
