Tour HighLights

Hacienda Yaxcopoil (Sisal)

Hacienda Yaxcopoil was founded in the 17th century. Its name means in the Mayan language “place of the green Alamos”. The hacienda brings together in its history the three great periods of the Yucatan of yesterday, pre-Hispanic life, colonial life and the henequen boom of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In the henequen shredder plant, it shows vestiges of the first engines and machines of the 19th century for the agricultural and industrial process. In the engine room, a German diesel engine with 100 HP of power brand Körting (Hannover) from 1913 is kept in good condition, which was used until 1984 when the production of henequen fiber on the farm ended, after more than a century.

Chocolate Museum

It is not a conventional museum, its focus goes towards the interactive side, where you are the protagonist of the tour. The concept of the museum is to rescue the history of cocoa; from Mexico to the world in the middle of botanical gardens with cacao trees along the route.It has 6 permanent rooms, each of which represents an important aspect in the history of cocoa, a timeline from the fruit to the chocolate today.

Cenote Kankirixche

Kankirixche whose meaning is “yellow fruit of the tree” is a cave-type cenote that opens in the ground. From the ceiling to the water you can see long roots that can sink up to 2 meters. The underwater cavern is one of the largest known in Mexico,

Yucatean food for lunch
