TravelPod Member ReviewsLas Arecas Merida
We stayed at the Las Arecas for just 1 night but we could've stayed for longer. Mauro was very welcoming and stepping into the guesthouse after a crazy 21 hour bus ride was like stepping into a quiet, cool and cozy oasis. We had a private room with bathroom on the 2nd floor and the room was spacious and comfortable. The location is pretty central - maybe a few blocks from the main centre but it was nice a pleasant walk around town. The price was very decent too.

They turned out to be siblings, Chiara and Marco, from the northern part of Italy (Lago di Como). After arriving in Merida we ended up in a local bar drinking beer.

Was quite a strange day in general actually – got the collectivo out to the first lot of pools, which were awesome aside from the bit where I ignored the slippy and hold on to the rail signs and completely bailed down a load of steps. Stayed there for about an hour, but whilst I thought that was the only place we were visiting, apparently there were some more cenotes in the area so we left and jumped on to this really odd back to front tuk tuk ...
... homes, some palapas and others structures, but all with albarradas (stone structures like small walls delineating their properties, a Maya tradition) and hammocks. The women from age 19 to late 80s or 90s board the bus. Should they be younger, they carry children with them and wear jeans - modern clothes. The older women wear hipiles and are missing teeth. They are sacredly tanned and wrinkled. They have soft and content eyes, relaxed and proud ...
