“Something new has been added.”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The English library in Merida offers so much more than what you would expect. Yes, they have books and DVD's and lots of information on local happenings. It's a great place to meet and greet but now something extra is happening and I want to share the fun experience I had. On Tuesdays you can meet around nine in the morning and after some coffee and pastries an informative talk is given on Merida homes and then we were taken to see 4 different homes. The walking was easy as none of the homes are very far away. And what a variety! I was really impressed with the different look and feel of the homes. This is something that could be enjoyed many times. The owners were friendly and the person leading the way was well versed on Merida.
I know I am going again.
