About Tim Ghirardelli
Formerly from the San Fransisco Bay Area, I'm fascinated by ancient advanced cultures worldwide and the megalithic structures they leave behind. While visiting Merida for the first time in 2003 to discover the contributing role of the Maya, I was hooked and came back to discover even more...

Why Tim Ghirardelli chose Barrio de Santiago
It's always a pleasure to see the evolving food, art, music, people and cultural scene--there is so much here to experience. You can feel the history and explore the many fascinating Archeological and natural wonders nearby. It's great knowing Casa La Barenda is an easy day-trip from many areas on the planet, yet it's a world away! Being able to walk to everything in the Centro Historico and only twenty minutes from Merida’s international airport makes it a snap to go.
What makes this house unique
Guests love the walk-to-everything lifestyle and the relaxing feel of the home. Experience the leisurely pace with comfortable furniture and colonial features decorated with a blend of antiques and local artwork. You'll decompress here in no time with the indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Chill around the plunge pool, warm your bones at the rooftop lounge and gently swing away in handmade hammocks. The casa feels good and travelers and friends think enough to return. Hopefully Casa La Barenda and Merida surrounds will bring a smile and pleasure to your stay too.
