Welcome to your travels in the Yucatan Peninsula! Looking for a hotel in Merida, Mexico? May we suggest Luz En Yucatan as your home away from home? In the historical heart of Merida, Luz en Yucatan is dedicated to making your visit to Mexico a joy. Hotel Luz En Yucatan offers a wide variety of fully-furnished rooms, including studios or one-bedrooms, poolside rooms with terraces, and an elegant penthouse apartment with a rooftop terrace... all with private baths and air-conditioning. Luz en Yucatan has many lovely common areas, including a pool in a private, walled garden, a common dining area and kitchen, and various places relaxing and regrouping. And we now have WiFi set up so you can enjoy all this and still stay in touch with the office, if you must. Luz En Yucatan is not just a hotel in Mexico. Luz is an urban retreat in the beautiful colonial city of Merida, offering unique accommodations for the independent traveler. You'll enjoy our relaxed and casual lodging policy. Come as you are, be yourself. We will afford you a milieu that is relaxed and welcoming. Luz En Yucatan has been reviewed and recommended by writers from The Rough Guide, The Moon Guide and the Insight Guide to the Yucatan, among others. In his new book, "Mexico Mike" writes: "I don't mention a lot of hotels in this book, because this is not a travel guide, but sometimes I just can't resist... One of the unique hotels that is probably one of my favorite in Mexico is here: Luz En Yucatan is in the center of the city, but in a world apart". In his new book, Make Your Travel Dollars Worth a Fortune, Tim Leffel has great things to say about Luz En Yucatan: "The place oozes character: the public spaces are full of local artifacts and antiques. Tropical plants encircle the picturesque courtyard swimming pool. We are next to a park that often hosts live music shows and are three short blocks from the city's historic grand plaza. Dozens of interesting restaurants are a five-minute walk away." We invite you to read more reviews here. While our policies are laissez-faire and our atmosphere is muy tranquilo, our commitment to the comfort and well-being of our guests is rock solid.

Welcome to Cascadas de Merida!

Certificate of Excellence

Once the family home of our ancestors, the building that became Cascadas de Merida has been transformed into a cool and tranquil hideaway in the center of downtown Merida. You will be in the center of the city, close to everything, but when you are home at Cascadas de Merida, tranquil waterfalls surround your private casita with the light and sound of cooling, calming water. We have created a unique bed & breakfast where our primary goal is the comfort of our guests.
Relax ~ in one of our four private casitas centered around the filtered pool. The casitas are wonderfully ventilated and climate-controlled with a remote controlled and very quiet air conditioner. During most of the year, you'll stay cool with just the ceiling fan. We've made sure there is great lighting for reading, dressing, and ambiance. Your casita is also equipped with Internet access, a phone, a private safe and cable television.
Refresh ~ in our spacious filtered pool. Do laps, aquatic aerobics, or just enjoy a complimentary tropical fruit beverage from our water covered pool stools. Or just float! Afterwards take part in our local Yucatan ritual, a siesta in a hammock. Our hammocks are located poolside! After a long day, freshen up in your shower and enjoy the view of your own private waterfall. Relax to the sights and sounds of tranquil cascading water. Now that is luxury!
Revitalize ~ by taking advantage of our many spa services. We can also arrange hair care, a manicure, or a pedicure. And if you are interested, ask us about Salsa and exercise lessons.
We know Merida and we want to share it with you! For over thirty years, we have been coming to Merida and now we've made it our home. Chucho was born here (and grew up in this house!). Because we have family and friends and a history here, we can tell you all about the city. We would be pleased to recommend and arrange day trips and tours. We can also recommend restaurants and pass on shopping tips and more with you when you stay at Cascadas de Merida.
Bienvenidos!
