Not all species of agave are used in making tequila. These photos are of the garden of henequen (Agave fourcroydes Lemaire) at Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa in the Riviera Maya. Henequen is a succulent plant used by Mayans to make fabric, string and a traditional Mexican liqueur. It is similar to sisal which was once used to make ropes before the introduction of synthetic fibers.
