the Mayan language "place of green poplars." The farm brings in
history, three major periods of the Yucatan of yesterday, life

and early twentieth century.

henequen. However with the passage of time and with continued
processes of political change, social and economic development in the region, its
extension was reduced to less than 3% of its former area.

The Mayan ruins scattered structures formed by pyramidal

prehispanic period.

as a museum, as well as to location of photos and production
films. It also has a guest house within the
