TELL ME MORE ABOUT CASA TERRACITA!

Every detail of this stylish and curated three-bedroom home delights. Whether you’re after color, comfort or modern convenience, you’ll find it all at Casa Terracita - a mini-urban hacienda in the heart of Merida’s bohemian art district.

Weave your way through the oversized living and dining rooms, past your own courtyard pool and garden, to your master bedroom suite. All rooms come complete with original art, tasteful furnishings, color, texture, and more.

Work your way upstairs to the pièce de résistance - a rooftop terrace (aka terracita) - where colorful architectural details abound. Enjoy the cool breezes, mix yourself a cocktails behind your full-service bar and enjoy the evening next to the historic rail terminal turned art school.

Casa Terracita comes fully-equipped with all the modern conveniences including a 42-inch flat panel TV, HD cable and wireless internet to keep you connected to the outside world.

Add to this a fully-stocked kitchen where you can whip up a simple ceviche and finish it off with a dip in your pool. Don’t feel like cooking? No problem. We can arrange for a private chef to cook up Mexican favorites or International fare for you and your guests, or contact us and we’ll have a gourmet meal delivered direct to your door.

Sleep in comfort with A/C in each bedroom and plenty of storage to unpack your bags and settle in. Add to that complimentary weekly cleanings for stays over seven days, and you’re ready to unwind, relax and immerse yourself in the history and culture of Merida.

Casa Terracita sits in the heart of one of Merida’s oldest neighborhoods, Parque de la Mejorada. During the day, this tranquil park is home to Merida’s school of architecture - where you can see hipster students donning the latest in urban eyewear and carrying t-squares in their backpacks. Hear music in the air? It’s most likely the youth symphony orchestra practicing works by Beethoven or Mozart, or it’s one of many military bands gearing up for the week’s processional through the city.

Feeling hungry? Head to Los Almendros at the northwest corner of the park. This quintessential restaurant is home to some of the best flavors of the Yucatan - from sopa de lima (think tortilla soup with a squeeze of lime) to cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork marinated in achiote paste and sour orange).

Three blocks further west lies Merida’s Plaza Principal (or zocalo), where you can tour the main cathedral then head to MACAY, Merida’s contemporary art museum. Or stroll over to Paseo de Montejo, Merida's Champs Elysees for some people watching along this tree-lined boulevard and see some of the grandiose mansions the city has to offer.

Casa terracita is downtown and close to buses, taxis and even horse-drawn carriages to get you where you need to go.
