Haciendas and Cenotes (sinkholes)
All day. Includes transportation, specialized guide and lunch.
On this tour you will visit various haciendas to discover the culture and traditions of the past. At the end of the 19th century, the “henequen” plant production was the main industry in Yucatan which brought wealth to the peninsula and its more than 600 haciendas.
The age of the "green gold" ended in the 1930’s, when the natural fiber was swept from the markets by the synthetic nylon. Today you can still feel the glory of those times past when you enter an hacienda. Each has its own charm and style, and each has a story to tell.
In all of Yucatan, there is not a single river to be seen, but still there is enough water! An underground system of rivers runs beneath the surface of the peninsula. Where the limestone layer which covers the ground is broken, a pond of fresh water is revealed that can be reached from the surface.
This gift from nature is called "cenote". Is there a better way to end your tour than to take a dip in the cool, crystal clear water of a cenote?
