The test of an adventure is that when you're in the middle of it you say to yourself ; "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess, I wish I were sitting quietly at home; And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you are sitting quietly at home, wishing you were out having lots of adventure."
At Angeles de Merida we offer the intimacy of a small guest house, without the pretentions of a large hotel. We used to call ourselves a B & B but for some reason that title seems to conjure up the image of staying with your fussy old aunt (we promise not to pinch your cheeks when you get here). We live on site so we are here to assist you whenever you need it.
Who we are….refugees of the 60s/70s who fell into the corporate world for many years..only to finally figure out it wasn’t all worth it..so here we are….living in Mexico..running a great little guest house and meeting great people from all over the world. We being total animal lovers have two dogs…Zelda, slightly old and crotchety terrier and Izzy..a bundle of welcoming love….In addition..there is Frida the Squaking Bird, and numerous chattering geckos. There are roosters that crow in the morning on the next block over and the Milk man with his cart comes by Moo-ing in the morning. We are not in a gated community but in real-life Centro. This is Mexico with all of it’s charming idiosyncrasies. If you are not a person who wants to experience the “real” Mexico, this may not be the place for you. If you are seeking the Mexico inner city experience, we offer the perfect hideaway. We attempt to make your visit as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
Merida is the capital city of the state of Yucatan. Known as the "White City" because of the large use of white limestone and white paint this traditional city depicts much of the splendor of Colonial Mexico. This is by no means to say that Merida still exists in a time warp and the contrary could be said. There is old and new exhibited in everything from fashion to architecture.
The Spanish Conquistador Francisco de Montejo founded present day Merida in 1542. An insight into the horrendous pain and suffering of the people who were brutalized by the conquering conquistadors exists in magnificent paintings that are on display in the Governor's Palace located in downtown Merida.
Left in seclusion for many years because of the difficulty of traveling to Merida the people of this region have cultivated a distinct contemporary society that is unique in Mexico.
