... experiences in why we believe in ghosts or souls. First, I shared my experience as a child in talking with my grandpa Jerry and also stories about him talking to angels after his stroke. Then, she opened up with me about her brother who had passed away 6 years ago. She had been having dreams about him for about a month, him telling her that he was not resting. She said that while she was sleeping, she awoke to something cold on her arm that made her skin freeze ...
Well today was a great day if a little challenging. We drove about an hour out of Merida to a Mayan village near Cazuma. On the way there were a number of haciendas which had specialized in sisal production but as you would expect the hacienda dwellers got rich and the Mayan workers stayed poor. Many of these still had their grand gateways and walls but were completely overgrown as they had been abandoned due to the sisal ...
... br> Afterwards, we stayed there and had a Mexican lunch. I had the vegetable soup (which was way too salty so after a couple spoonfuls, I was done), empanadas, rice, chicken and put the salsa verde on it. Oh the salsa was really spicy which was so good!!! I need to learn how to make this stuff!! The green salsa back at the hotel wasn't as spicy as this one but the red one was so I asked Thomas about it. He said it has to do with ...
We then went to the wet part of the market to buy chicken. Here you can buy half a cow cut any way you want, pig, turkeys, chickens, rabbits etc all with their feet so you know what you are buying (a cat without its feet looks like a rabbit). No horse though. The chicken are fresh, frozen, young or old hens. The hens are opened up and the newly forming eggs shown so you know what you are getting. The heart, kidneys and lungs are separated from ...

I think our favorite part was Casa de la Luna (House of the Moon), which is on the south side of the plaza flanked either side by six terraces; the wide external stairway ascends to the temple remains on the top. Each of the steps is made up of material from previous buildings. Each step has its own carving and every carving is different.

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Sacnicte Bed and Breakfast Merida
Casa Sac Nicte is a lovely and relatively new hotel in Merida. We were recommended it by the owners of Posada Luna del Sur in Tulum and were not disappointed.
Friendly and Quiet
We visited Merida for 2 nights (Jan '07). Wilbert and Guadalupe were very friendly - making our room availible for a very early check-in and providing a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, coffee and breads. Casa Sacnicte is a comfortable, clean and quiet respite from the sometimes hectic streets of Merida.
As uninformed travelers, we had a great stay in Merida at Casa Sacnicte. Our host family was extremely gracious and helpful in arranging tours, taxies or helping us exchange dollars for Pesos. Our room and bathroom were spotless . The breakfast was great, and the location enabled us to walk to the main attractions in Merida. The courtyard , gardens, and uniqueness of the home provided opportunities for restful times. This is indeed a great host family. We returned home with a desire to again visit Merida and Casa Sacnicte.
Good find in Merida!
Good find in Merida! The property is new and wonderfully decorated. The owners have lived in the United States and speak very good English. They are very helpful, the price is a good value, and the breakfast (which is included) consists of coffee, bread, Mexican bread, fresh fruits, and freshly squeezed orange juice, And there is free internet connection!
Great place, clean rooms and the best hospitality.
This is a wonderfull B&B located just 2 blocks from the main square. The rooms were very clean and have airconditioning, a television and a ceiling fan. The people that run this place are very charismatic and brought breakast to our room when we were feeling under the weather. Highly recommended!
We just came back from Yucatan (Jan 07) and spent three nights in this lovely B&B, which we highly recommend.
This week we stayed in this Bed and Breakfast for a few days. The room had a nice warm atmosphere, eveything was perfectly clean and all the things were working. The price was 430 pesos a night incl. breakfast.
Breakfast was delightful (freshly made fruit, coffee, tea, orange juice, yoghurt, toast, sweet buns, actually too much if you all like it!).
The owner pays attention to you and he is a very warm positive man.
It's only five minutes walk from downtown.
We recommend this B&B enormously!

Wonderful ambiance and great hosts. Our room was very clean and spacious with a nice balcony. The garden was delightful. Easy walking distance to downtown. Our hosts were wonderful, warm, knowledgable and made us feel right at home. I would recommend this place to anyone!
I visited Mexico a few weeks ago, traveled with my best friend for eighteen days troughout the south. We visited Mexico City, San Cristobal de las Casas, Palenque, Merida and Playa, Tulum and many more, and were enchanted with the culture, we are both from Monterrey but I reside in Texas. It is just another world, but of all the wonderfull places that we visited I must say that the best place where we stayed was Casa Sac Nicte. It was raining so hard and we thought we had reservations at this hostel, we showed up late at night and were told that sorry but no reservations were made (many of us have had that horrible experience). The receptionist told us to go across the steet and we did, when we walked in, my first thought: "this is going to be a little expensive for us, we still had to travel for anothe 13 days and were in a budget. To our surprise was only $35. The house is beautifull, the colors are bright and the rooms: two big great beds, we were able to sleep like babies. Air conditioner, fan, clean, clean, clean. The bathroom clean, hot water (the best shower of the trip, not even in Playa at a hotel tops it). Breakfast included, they have it ready for you at the time you request, a good portion of fruit (papaya, MANGO, etc), sweet Mexican bread, toast, orange juice, coffee and even yogurt; have to say the best breakfast of the trip.. Did I mention clean, not that other places were dirty but this place is just great. But I have to say the best, best of this place was the service, the guys were very helpful to us, they advised where to go and what to eat, well they even took us to the restaurant because it was raining. Muchas gracias chicos. I will have to say we were treated great and got way much more than $35 is worth. I strongly recomend for anybody to stay, you will love it.
My wife and I recently spent a few days in Merida at the Casa Sacnicte B&B. This B&B is absolutely awesome. We paid $35 US for the room and it is an absolute steal. The B & B is a newly renovated family colonial home near the center of Merida. The rooms are absolutely charming, exceptionally clean, and the atmosphere of this small quaint B & B is fabulous. Roy and Guadalupe were very welcoming to us and helpful as they could be. When we first made our reservations, we were a bit skeptical that something at this price could be a great place to stay, but we were absolutely astonished. This is surely the best bargain for quality in Merida. When I am in Merida again, I will stay here.
