Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I've always been enchanted every time I've visited Mexico and in 2009 I made the leap to move to Merida in the Yucatan. This city is a unique place full of beautiful old colonial architecture, an interesting art scene, lots of free concerts and dance performances, and is close to many of the ancient Mayan ruins. The beautiful beaches are also close by. And the people of Merida are friendly--as they say, "muy tranquilo"! I'd be happy to share my lovely home with you during your stay in Merida and help you make the most fun out of your time here.

Why the Owner Chose Merida:
I chose Merida because it's a very safe part of Mexico! It's also tropical and beautiful and has lots of interesting things to explore. As a city, if offers museums and shopping and events but it's close to the beaches and the countryside and the Mayan sites. It has something for everyone!

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Staying at El Ave Blanca B&B, you'll feel like you're visiting a friend in Merida, with access to the kitchen for fixing lunches or dinners, with personal attention from a native English speaker, with good proximity to all the tourist sights. All of this for extremely low rates including a delicious breakfast.
