A little over two years ago three of us stayed at La Casa Lorenzo for a weekend and had a very positive experience. This time I was alone for two days and had a similar one.
Larry is a great host who serves delicious and fulfilling breakfasts (one day it was cochinita pibil, a Yucatan slow roasted pork specialty, and the other day it was eggs rancheros - both dishes ok'd by guests in advance) and offers comfortable rooms with large private bathrooms and plenty of hot water for showers. There is also plenty of safe drinking water.
With no more than 10 guests at a time it is easy to meet travelers from all over the world and share experiences and recommendations for shopping, tours and miscellaneous adventures in Merida and the Yucatan. The courtyard has a pool and a covered bar which is the gathering place for guests and an occasional visitor from the neighborhood.
It is a short walk from Larry's B & B to the central square - a walk which offers shops, restaurants, churches and other unique sites only found in a old colonial city.
I highly recommend La Casa Lorenzo and would definitely stay there again.More
