La Casita is located in the heart of Mérida, only a few minutes away Parque de Santa Ana. In ten minutes, you can walk to the famous Paseo de Montejo. Mérida is not only the cosmopolitan capital of the Yucatán state with a rich Mayan history but also the safest city in México. The great transportation options to nearby states Quintana Roo and Campeche make Mérida the ideal base camp to discover other parts in the south of México.
After class you can visit to one of the many coffee houses. The local fresh grinded coffee beans deliver a delicious cup of comfort. For an authentic experience we recommend that you step inside of one of the cantinas for a plato del dia, a dish of the day, that you can wash away with a beer, and another one, and another one, and another one. Here you taste the kitchen of Yucatán for little or no money.
The gained calories you will burn with a stroll across the Paseo de Montejo – a six kilometres long boulevard surrounded with trees, 19th century mansions, cafés and restaurants. Discover the streets of the centre of Mérida, with the pastel coloured colonial buildings, or sit yourself on a bench under a palm tree on one of the many plazas while you are enjoying an ice cream or slurping a fruit juice.
Lovers of history and art are well catered for. Within walking distance of La Casita you will find many regional museums and galleries. The more distant museums you can reach simply and fast with public transportation or Uber, which is always available and cheap.
The nightlife of Mérida is legendary. About every night of the week you can listen to live music in one of the cantinas. Not to mention the cultural calender, that is full of free events. On the plazas scattered over the town you can enjoy singing and dancing. Don’t forget to stop at the artisan markets. The most famous one, Mérida en Domingo, takes place every Sunday on the central plaza.
With public transportation you can take trips to the nearby ruines (among others Uxmal, Kabah and Chichen Itzá), beaches, nature, haciendas, Mayan-villages and cenotes. The possibilities are endless.
So what are you still waiting for?
See you in Mérida!
