SISAL TWINE PRODUCED IN COZUMEL - HISTORIC PROPERTY AQUIRED

70 years ago, the Yucatan peninsula had no land comunication with the rest of Mexico. 30 years ago, the State of Quintana Roo was still a territory 30 years. The main income 100 years ago was the production of sisal twine (the heneken plant) of which all the ropes in the world were made of. The Yucatan peninsula was the sole supplier of this material worldwide. It was considered the "Green Gold". The only sisal Hacienda on the eastern coast was in Cozumel. It was called "Hacienda De Colombia" located on the edge of a lagoon with the same name. This week Mike and Beth, from California USA, have aquired this unique and historical property of over 5000 square meters. They plan to reconstruct the old Hacienda to be able to re open it fo our visitors. They also plan to live on this fantastic property full of "cenotes" and tropical plants a few yards from the ocean. And it was only $170,000 usd. "Wow! This is only posible in Cozumel" reports Bill Morales and Nancy Edwards of Cozumel Living
