We were two couple traveling on an anniversary/end of summer trip. For me, visiting Mérida was pretty much a life long goal, since watching Mexican soap operas with my mom when I was a kid. You walk in to a long living space divided into two spaces. To the right of that living space there are two big bedrooms that can be used separately or together, and one of them has a bathroom with a tub. Back out in the living space, there is a big TV. Once you pass that space, you go through a door to a beautiful outdoor space. To the right of that there is a door to a big spacious kitchen, with connects through another door to bedroom #3, with its own bathroom. Back out in the open space, at the end of it there is a fourth bedroom with its own en suite bathroom. All of the bedrooms have excellent AC units with remote controls. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, but does not have AC. We only used it for breakfast before it got to hot. This is where the ants come in. If you leave ANY crumbs, open food, or don't take out the trash, the ants will find a way through that door! This is NOT a deal breaker; just a warning to be vigilant. If you're there on a Saturday, the house is 1.5 blocks from the South end of Paseo de Montejo. To the left, the city sponsors a free dance and song show for the public. There are vendors selling their crafts and food stalls...all making for a fun evening. If you want to buy crafts, I suggest the State of Yucatan store right on Calle 47 because the people that make the crafts get more money....there is no middle man. The store is on the next block after Gran Cafe and is on the same side of Calle 47 as the house (Casa Alpuche), and is across from a Pemex gas station. If you make a right and walk up Paseo de Montejo, there is a Hennessey's for a drink and an ice cream place called Colon's, both on the right. We had the BEST LOCAL ice cream at Colon's. About the house, it's beautiful but be aware that it is a very old house. There are no closets in the bedrooms, but the owners set out luggage tables. Speaking of the owners, they are a VERY VERY NICE couple. When the electricity went out for a few hours, by NO FAULT OF THE OWNERS (the local electricity company had to reset the power), they both came to the house to deal with the company, apologized profusely, chatted with us, and eventually even gave us a small credit. Those are the details that count! If you have a car, parking is on the street; we never parked more than three cars away from the front door. We hope to come back one day!
