We toured the main house furnished to that time, in all its elegance.

There is a green cross at the main house which represents Mayan influence on religion
We strolled through the history of the Henequen process with antique tools and machinery, and rode on a mule-drawn-trolley (the trucks of that day) passing by fields of the 'green gold' agave plants.

We stopped at the house of Don Antonio, an 83-year-old Mayan who worked on the Hacienda, and still lives there.
The last hour of the tour, we spent at the on-site cenote. Then relaxed in hammocks.
