Apartment Renting

by geo6121

Hello Group,

I am probably going to move to Merida in the beginning of September, 2006.

Would anybody have any idea of how to go about finding an apartment for under $300 for a long stay ?

Thanks very much,

I don't have an answer to your question. However, I have a source for your to check and a message board for Merida to post this question if you don't find here what you're looking for:

Travel Tips for Mérida

Moorish influence

by karenincalifornia

The architecture in Merida has a strong Moorish influence, which you will see throughout the city. One example is the Autonomous University of Yucatan in the Centro Historico. Building of this structure began in 1701 and it used to be a Catholic seminary. Students were very welcoming here and invited us to come on into the main area and look around.

Loltun Caves

by karenincalifornia

Loltun Caves are about 90 minutes south of Merida in the Puuc Hills. The Yucatan peninsula is a fascinating mass of land. A large part of it has no rivers or lakes. Underneath the ground, however, is a large underground lake, that provides water to the area. This huge underground lake, over hundreds of thousands of years, has produced a network of caves, most of which haven't even been fully explored.

These caves were home to pre-Mayan people and used as a hideout during the War of the Castes in the mid-19th century. But why am I so skeptical that I couldn't believe that the painted handprint in the cave was really made by a pre-Mayan?

Visitors must go with a guide, and while there is no set price, you will be made to feel obligated to pay $450 pesos per family. It's worth it. Our guide, Rodrigo was knowledgeable and spoke very good English. The entire tour was about 90 minutes. You'll see stalactite and stalagmite formations, bats (which was really a treat) and the infamous pre-Mayan handprint.

While the cave is cooler than the surface, it is not like visiting a cave in the US, where the temperatures are so cold, you need a jacket even in the summer. It was about 90 degrees F outside when we were at Loltun, and probably 15 degrees cooler in the cave. Cooler but not too cool.



Mayaland Resort offers beautiful outdoor and indoor dining rooms. There are four or five on the grounds. We had breakfast on the terrace before going into Chichen Itza and after touring the ruins, we came back to Mayaland's main dining room for lunch. The food is excellent.

These peahens walked leisurely around the deck to pick up the crumbs that diners dropped.

Palacio de Gobierno

by Kindberg37

On the north side of the main square is the Government Palace, constructed in 1892. Inside is a courtyard and murals on the walls. Don't let the guards outside scare you - it's free to get in and is beautiful to walk around.


by Sandi-2004

The Mercado which is several blocks south of the main square is really something to see. Besides the fruit, vegetables, handicrafts, jewelry, tortillas being turned out by a machine, there are also animals being sold live or butchered on the spot, dressed and hung on a rack on the counter for sale. This photo was taken from a distance but if you enlarge it, you will see the plucked chickens hanging on top of the counter. This was in the 97 degree F heat of the afternoon when we were there, so evidently we are overly concerned about refrigeration because doing without it doesn't seem to be a problem in many parts of the world.
