Hotels & Helpful Recommendations:

Hotel Casa Lucia

We have a great rate here. Contact Jeanette Marin via email at: [email protected]  Be sure to tell her you want the Life in Mérida rate with Amy Jones. I’ve stayed here several times and it’s my first choice of affordable hotels in Centro. The rate includes breakfast and a discount at Soberana Restaurant – highly recommend!

City Express Plus 

This hotel in Paseo 60 is great – very clean, modern, bright and great location. Good wifi connection with shopping, ADO station, and restaurant options on the ground floor. Rate includes breakfast until 9:00 am but I was not a fan. Regardless, Expedia has the best pricing for this great option in Centro.
