Merida, the city where this Yucatan hotel is located, is the cultural and financial capital of the region. Best described as modern and cultured, this metropolis is home to museums and art galleries, as well as natural wells, archeological sites, and beaches.
A trip to Merida offers a glimpse of the country’s rich history, starting with the remnants of the Spanish city gates that welcome travelers from all over the world. The Mayan heritage is carried on by the language spoken by the Yucatec Maya, which forms a third of the city’s population, and its influence on the local cuisine, clothing, and festivals. Because of this dedication to preserving age-old tradition, Merida was named the Cultural Capital of the Americas in 2000.
