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.

The second cenote was similar to the first, a bit smaller but with a giant rope to swing and jump into the water. It was a bit more crowded but still only had a few people.
Then we went to the third cenote, of which I unfortunately have no photos because it would have been impossible to bring a camera down. To access it, we ...
... reef within a reasonable distance form the boat. A school group would thrive in this environment because it is fun, its different and its something you would not get the chance to do everyday. After 2 hours of stop and start diving we returned to the mainland and had lunch and a group chat about what we liked, didn't like and what we learned. After lunch the guides took the group on a tour of the coastline in the boat ...
... onto a USB and take it to a copy/print place 2 blocks away. So essentially today we did not go out and hung about. I also rechecked all the gear and tried to rationalise and organise the pack to make sure I am not carrying excessive stuff. I did manage to get the prinitng done for my Cuba flight, accommodation and taxi pickup soam feeling good now . We're also now booked with accommodation in Peurto Morelos which is south from Cancun towards Playa Del Carmen on the ...
