How to route through firewall to access IPsec Tunnel

Please see attached Diagram for reference.

I have established a VPN tunnel from our main site to our data hosting company.  I want to be able to allow for traffic from the remote site ( and destined for the data center ( to go through the VPN tunnel on the Main Site.  It is a pretty simple setup.  

Should I route from the ASA and forward all data center traffis to go through the main site?  What do I do with the data when it arrives at the main site to route it through the tunnel?

You should not need more than to set the
* Remote Site ASA to route traffic for Data Center thru the Main Site ASA
* Main Site ASA to know how to route traffic to Remote Site (
* Data Center server(s) to route traffic for via the VPN tunnel.
So it is all about proper routing.

I was told by someone knowledgeable that I would need to contact my ISP to advertise the route to the specific host to get it across the MPLS network.  Any thoughts?
Sounds reasonable. Though, I don't have any experience with MPLS.
