This place is really something special. Everything had been exquisitely kept and put on display with a great deal of care. It was free to go inside and there about 5 rooms that could be visited. One of them showed an exhibition from Veracruz of an artist called Jose Justo Montiel as you can see on the above link.
Then it was off to this internet cafe, and soon I will go to the Bierhaus for one drink ...
... they could even predict solar eclipses, and an impressive and sophisticated observatory structure remains on the site today.
This great city’s only permanent water source was a series of sinkhole wells. Spanish records report that young female victims were thrown into the largest of these, live, as sacrifices to the Maya rain god thought to live in its depths. Archaeologists have since found their bones, as well as the jewelry and other precious objects ...
... classical fare which had preceeded them.
The concert finished and I headed back down Paseo Montejo. Feeling peckish, I stopped into a café I spotted on the other side of the road. On the menu I saw 'sopa de lima' (something like 'lime soup'), a Yucatán speciality which I was keen to try. Sorry people of Yucatán, it was tasty enough but somewhat bland. I think I tasted and saw chicken and pork along with onion and other vegetables. I left the café ...
... difficult task. I started downwards sitting down and going down bum first until one of the other guys on the tour
and the lady with the baby said to go down sideways. So we slowly made our way back down. Had it been a sunny day, I probably would've taken the time to climb to the top but it was raining and the steps were very slippery. We explored the other buildings in the ruin city but there wasn't a lot to see as they are ...
... compared to all the other sites, there is an area with hundreds of pillars that used to be a market where they would trade things like stones and clothing from different areas. The main area around the pyramid was the city center way back in 500-900ad when the site was used as a city, the housing for the maya people would be build in the surrounding jungle area. We got a lot of information for once and didn't have to make up our own stories. There was a very large ...

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.
