My father and I came to Merida to visit friends. We were overwhelmed by beautiful yet homelike feel of Casa's Santiago, and Casa Feliz. We were fortunate enough to be there when the owners were there. I mean that as they are wonderful people to spend time with. I'm sure things still would have been wonderful if they were not there.
If Casa Santiago is the "Crown Jewel" of the Yucatan, then Sergio, the manager of Casa Santiago is the "Crown Jewel" of Casa's Santiago, Feliz and Navidad. He speaks fluent English and Spanish. He has a grasp on the history of the city. I was impressed with his knowledge of Mayan history at one of many museums in Merida. He is also well versed in the history of the city itself.
Roberto took us on a trip to the Mayan ruins. We had a great time with him also. He knows a lot about the history of the area. He took us to a hacienda, his hometown, and we had lunch at a fine restaurant. He is also fluent in Spanish and English,
Just make sure you have insect repellant. Skeeters are a Yucatan thing. They're low fliers. They normally don't bite any higher than mid-shin.
I definitely look forward to going back.
