Luz en Yucatan…
This will be my last post on Merida for now. I want to eventually do a post or two on black and white in Merida, but for now I will conclude with a short post on the hotel where I stayed.
The Luz en Yucatan is the one with the gold facade. I wish I would have gotten a front-on shot but this will have to do. Looks pretty plain and unassuming, right?
This is the main hallway with rooms on both sides. This leads to the courtyard and pool on the backside of the hotel. See that little beverage table to the left? It is equipped with tequila and various liquors which are complimentary for guests. Very cool.
And here’s the courtyard and pool. A VERY relaxing area after a day of tromping around Merida. I’ve mentioned before that Merida is a concrete jungle. But it makes up for that with these little oases that are hidden in the recesses of the concrete facades.
The Luz en Yucatan is a wonderful, comfortable hotel. The pool and courtyard offer a beautiful respite from the Merida heat and the owners are very friendly. At only $50 a night, I would highly recommend it. Be aware that this is becoming a very popular hotel and they are already booked throughout much of the year, so if you’re interested, you might want to make your reservation well in advance. Another good thing is that they don’t require any kind of advance payment before you check in. You just have to pay in cash when you get there…they don’t accept credit cards.
