I escorted my parents on a 6 day trip to Merida and we stayed at the two bedroom Casa Feliz which is attached to the Casa Santiago B&B. The house and garden are beautiful and the location can't be beat, short walk to either the Plaza Grande or to Santiago Park. As much as we enjoyed the accommodations, we were overwhelmed by the hospitality of our host, Vince. He provided a wealth of knowledge on the city and his tour recommendations (he also made all the arrangements) were all perfect. Make sure to do the Celestun and the Uxmal tours, they are amazing. After long days sightseeing we would return to the casa and head straight for the garden, it is like a calm oasis is the middle of pretty hectic city. The traffic noise would fade away as we sat by the pool surrounded by lush tropical foliage. I can't recommend this place enough.
