Across from the English Library , Fun, Elegant, Quiet retreat.
Welcome to Casa Esplendida, nestled in the heart of Historic Centro, Merida. Mayan Culture and Historical Architecture will amaze you! Located across from the English Library, (the hub of information for any visitor) Casa Esplendida is undeniably the best location for all that Merida has to offer. Museums, Art Galleries, Markets and Enchanting Parks with evening entertainment, as well as restaurants and shopping are all within a short walking distance. Day trips and many excursions are available to Mayan Ruins, Haciendas, Cenotes (underground fresh water caves) or even the beach.
From the moment you enter the Iron Gate, you are embraced by the antique vase with nine foot floral design, silhouetted by massive arches and 18 foot colonial ceilings. The foyer and living room speak of something rich and grand, yet soothing and comfortable. The original tile floors, the craftsmanship of local artists, and the comfortable furnishings will immediately make you feel you're at home.
Just completed in the spring of 2009, this Colonial Historic home has had a makeover just for you. Blended in accents of stone, hardwood and iron works by local craftsmen, Casa Esplendida is a tasteful melding of historic and modern, elegant and comfortable. The blend of colors and textures will draw you in through the dinning room arches, past the large modern kitchen (with eat at bar) and through the iron gate to the open air terrace. This area is large enough to entertain, yet cozy enough for two to relax in their own oasis retreat. Enjoy the new pool encompassed by massive archways and pillars on one side and flanked by a life size fountain of natural stone. The soft sounds of water gently cascading will melt your worries away. Siesta on the patio or roof top terrace and refresh yourself under the outside stone shower.
Everything has been completely redone: electrical, plumbing, air conditioning in both master suites and living room, ceiling fans and all new lighting. The kitchen is new and modern. Everything is there for you! Bedrooms are adorned with antique wood and iron, and bamboo furnishings to set the mood. You can enjoy dinning in the formal dinning room, which seats six, or outside on the patio. If you choose, you can entertain and dine right at the kitchen bar which is dressed in natural Tikul stone. The pool, patio, and kitchen are the heart of this home so you will never be more than a few steps away from your next cocktail or the volume on the radio. The floor plan has been designed for the utmost comfort, convenience and privacy. This home features wifi internet and a new television with cable. If you don’t have your laptop, just walk across the street to the library for computer access with an English key board. The Library can provide assistance, if needed. Pick up something to read or find out happenings of the day or events through out the week.
Your home away from home has many conveniences. Upon request, there can be maid service, cook, laundry, and gardener/pool service available. A Local Property Manager will meet each guest upon arrival to the Merida airport, where transportation to Casa Esplendida will be arranged. They can assist or give advice on transportation, tour information, restaurant recommendations, general information or emergencies.
Your visit will be Unforgettable! This property will invoke envy among your friends and family when you share your photos and beautiful memories with them.

Activities and Attractions in Merida Yucatan
Most of our favorite attractions are walking distance from Casa Esplendida, but check out www. yucatantoday. com for more ideas including day trips and tours with local maps. Take advantage of the Open Markets and Street Festivals and enjoy the live music and entertainment at a different Park every evening. Try Salsa dancing or enjoy fine dinning and music right on the streets of Merida, where every Saturday and Sunday the down town area is blocked off for fun night life. Take a romantic horse and buggy ride down the beautiful and historic Paseo Montejo, or bicycle Paseo Montejo on Sundays and take in the Historic Architecture and side walk art displays. Merida is gifted with an abundance of great Restaurants, Theaters, Museums, Art Galleries and Gift Shops. Walk across the street to the English Library, where on Wednesdays they have a walking tour of several homes. On Mondays take a free narrated tour of the Plaza Square and visit the oldest Cathedral on the American continent.
Explore all that the Yucatan has to offer on a day trip. One of our favorites is the tour to the Cuzama Cenotes. About an hour drive from Merida you will arrive at Chundanan Hacienda where you will be pulled through the jungle on a platform cart, by horses on a rail system to 3 Cenotes. Enjoy a refreshing afternoon swimming in these amazing underground fresh water pools. Located on the calm beaches southwest of Merida in Celestun are the beautiful flamingo colonies. About 30 minutes north of Merida you can enjoy a day at the beach and relax at a beach front restaurant with your favorite drink. Mayan Ruins surround you in Merida. One of the 7 Wonders of the World is Chichen Itza, just 1.5 hours from Merida. These Mayan pyramids date back over 1550’s years ago.
