Sotuta de Peon

The living history museum of a henequen (or sisal) hacienda plantation.
Before plastics put them out of business almost overnight, the hundreds of these plantations made the Yucatán one of the richest places on earth.
This is the only one that has been restored to its glory days. Though everything works and my photos take you step by step through each stage of the process, it no longer produces commercially. So far, one of my favorite tours on this journey.
btw- the plant is called henequen but it was exported from the port of Sisal and thus labeled, giving it that now-common name.
