Hotel Caribe

Listed under Best Hotels in Mérida, Mexico.

Pin It

Entering the lobby from Parque Hidalgo, you cannot fail to be impressed by the colonial warmth of the arches and colonnades, rising above gleaming black and white tiled floors. Pass through to the courtyard and you will see why the Caribe labels itself "the Real Colonial Atmosphere in Yucatan". Shady walkways around the courtyard on each of the three floors house terracotta potted plants and pleasant seating areas. The main charms of the Caribe are in these public areas; guest rooms are pretty and functional, but you are unlikely to spend much of your time there.

You'll find more advantages in the excellent location, one block from the main square and with good views of the cathedral from its small rooftop sun terrace. Parque Hidalgo, the shady plaza on which the hotel is situated, is a focal point of the city and ideal for people-watching at the many cafe tables that spill out into the square. We've spent many a pleasant evening here, lingering over a drink or a simple meal and watching the mingling of tourists and locals. There's a lot to see in Merida and its surroundings and we know that you'll find an excellent base, and great value for money, at the Caribe.
