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.

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.

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 ...
