The city of Merida has a quite different feeling from many other Mexican cities. There was great wealth in the city in the 1880's produce from the growing and manufacture of hemp in the surrounding haciendas. Many of which have been beautifully restored. This wealth was displayed in the mansions built on Paseo Montejo. But there is so much more to see in Merida and the place to stay while you are exploring is Villa Verde; a delightfully restored house close to the City Center. The owners Michael and Robert are on site and are very helpful in recommending restaurants (very good) and walks in the old part of town. AND they also prepare really great breakfasts!
If you are looking to stay in Merida do not go past Villa Verde!More
