My wife found Las Arecas Guest House, located in the heart of Merida when she was searching for a place for us to stay to our trip to the Yucatan. I have to admit I was a bit concerned about the low price of Las Arecas but we decided to go for it. When we arrived we were pleasently impressed about Las Arecas. This small guest house is clean, secure and has a location in the center of Merida that can't be beat. Mauro, the owner helped us find our way around the city. He told us of the best restaurants to go to and the coolest places to visit. Our room was a cottage, located at the back of the property complete with a small kitchen so we could make breakfast before we started our day and to keep our drinks cold in the fridge. When we left Las Arecas last week our only thought was we can't wait to return. We highly reccomend Las Arecas to anyone wanting an affordable, friendly place to stay when visiting Merida.
