Travel Blogs from Merida
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 …
... 5 beautiful reef dives of varying depth, 1 really cool wreck dives, 2 incredible Ceynotes dives (freshwater caves that have formed in the limestone rocks over thousands of years) and 1 disappoint let average night dive (although after that much time underwater I was pretty much watered out. Most of my dives started at 8am so each night except one I was in bed early. The one night I wasn't diving until 2:30pm I went out with ...

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.
