    Nice quiet spot in busy 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.

    Our trip to Merida turns out to be a nightmare, just after 1am in the middle of nowhere we are woken up by an announcement in Spanish we don't quite understand. However, we notice that the bus has stopped and everyone is getting off so we follow suit. We stumble out half asleep and are momentarily blinded by the headlights of police vans …

    After a nice breakfast made by Chris, we headed into Merida to take in a Museum of the Mayan. The pottery is quite a craft but the art on each piece is amazing. I got in trouble at the museum. The pieces are ...

    ... very delicious. Wendy had a soft shell crab with sweet potato mash and a creamy tomato sauce.We also indulged in a special 2 for 1 deal on cocktails which were a Tequila sunrise and a lime Marguraetta. Our hotel is Hotel Colonial about a block from the main square. This hotel is of a much improved standard. The city is quite enchanting at night with fine Spanish buildings both civil and churches surrounding a town square. A five star ...

    I woke up bright and early and had a light breakfast through room service. The bus to Cenote X Batun leaves at seven AM it took roughly an hour and a half to get there. I slept most of the bus trip so it went fairly quickly. In my back pack today I packed some snacks I bought last night while on my walk, a water bottle and a change of clothes because I plan to do a lot of swimming. Cenote X Batun is known for its pristine ...

    It was a case of 'first things first' when we woke up on our first proper day in Merida. We’d been looking forward to the eating in this part of the world for a long time, so as soon as we were out we made a beeline for the local market for our first dose of authentic Mexican street food.

    We settled on cochinita pilbil and a plate of papadzuelos for our first meal. We knew the cochinita was a regional favourite, slow-cooked ...
