Sample life in Merida’s historical Centro from the comfort of this architectural design winner. The moment you pass through the front doors you will feel the seamless merging of authentic Colonial architecture with the finest the 21st century has to offer. The murals in the living room and dining room were lovingly restored by Mr. Ponce’ when he remodeled the home several years ago. They are a constant reminder of this home’s link with Merida’s fascinating past.
Perhaps the best part of the home for most visitors, however, are the outdoor, poolside living and dining areas. They are the new heart of this warm, inviting home. The outdoor dining table, only steps from the modern, fully equipped kitchen, is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee.
Here you can watch for tropical birds and enjoy the vibrant flowers while the gently bubbling fountain gurgles in the background .
After a day of exploring Merida’s museums, art galleries and historic buildings, return to relax by the pool. The outdoor living room is the perfect spot for afternoon cocktails and snacks. Or maybe your thing is just a quick refreshing dip in the pool before heading back out to explore Yucatan’s beaches, haciendas, Mayan pyramids and quaint villages.
However you choose to spend your days in Merida, you will appreciate returning to the comfort of the king-sized beds, luxurious linens and comfortable, modern bathrooms. This home has everything to make three couples or a family of six feel pampered.
