There are opportunities to snorkel and experience the Gulf of Mexicos aquatic life. From the house it is a 5-10 minutes walk before you swim out to the reef where you can snorkel freely in the nice warm water.
Haciendas are mexico's name on the Castle or Manor. History tells us that many of Yucatan haciendas grow "Yucatans Green Gold", the henequen cactus, at the beginning of industiralismen time. From the henequen sisal ropes where made and sold worldwide. This is facinating history that you can both see and listen to at the Sotuta de PAEON where they also have a beautiful Cenote included in the tour which is advantageously begun or ended with something to eat in the restaurant which has delicious food.
