Sometimes we are not aware of the wonderful places to be found right in our backyards. I live right here in Merida, and until my friends stayed at the Cascadas de Merida, I’d never been to this sweet little spot. It has beautiful water accents, a pool garden, and a large gathering room where guests convene for breakfast and happy... More

A very engaging couple run this tranquil oasis in the heart of Santiago. One might experience a neighborly feeling over the breakfast table as lively conversation mixes with regional insights to guide the intrepid tourist along the way. Among the guests with whom we shared breakfast were a pair of visitors to this lovely establishment who had returned on multiple... More

Cascadas de Merida was the perfect spot for a weeklong stay in Merida while we attended Spanish language school. From the moment we arrived, we felt completely at home. Ellyne and Chucho were lovely hosts, and shared great stories and recommendations for local food and cultural experiences (not to mention sharing a great breakfast every day). The swimming pool was... More

If you want to truly experience Merida's culture- look no further, book this place right now! This was my first time visiting Merida and Ellyne and Chucho couldn't have made me feel more welcome. Their house is well kept, clean with all amenities you could ask for. A peaceful oasis inside with a pool open to the sunshine, but closed... More

Ellyne and Chucho are wonderful hosts and can make your first or you-can't-remember-how-many-times trip you have made to Merida more enjoyable. Merida has so much to offer and they know the city and the outskirts well. Their guests are generally well traveled, interesting, and good conversationalists at breakfast, which is a delectable feast. Chucho is a builder and designer with... More

Terrific hosts! Ellyne and Chucho know Merida inside and out and are generous with suggestions and assistance to make it all come together. Beautiful and spotless surroundings along with delicious breakfasts and a refreshing pool that made for a relaxing retreat after very full days of exploring. Walking distance to typical neighborhood plaza and to the colonial center of the... More

It has been five years since we last stayed at Cascadas de Merida and we found it as pleasant an experience as it ever was. Best part of the visit is the owners -- Ellyne and Chucho Basto. They are friendly, and helpful -- lots of information on what to see and do in Merida. The rooms are pleasant -... More

Based on the recommendation that brought me there, my expectations of Cascadas de Merida were high and they were entirely met! To create such a soothing and quiet oasis in the center of a bustling city is a true accomplishment. The rooms and the surrounding cascades of water are beautiful and full of comfort. The breakfast was perfect, and Ellyne... More

I love staying here. This is my second trip to Merida and I have stayed with Ellyne and Chucho, the owners, both times. I have traveled extensively around the world, and this place and these people are one of my favorite hosts and places to stay. I'll take that back, they are my favorites. I wish I was there today....

What a gem. Ellyne and Chucho have created a hideaway, but close enough to the city center to have the best of both worlds. The four rooms off of the pool surrounded by Chucho-created waterfalls alone are enough to go ahead and book now. But their friendliness and superb breakfasts (included) along with free access to a frig filled with... More
