Activities/Attractions: Merida is a beautiful city in the heart of the Yucatan with fantastic examples of Spanish colonial architecture dating back to the 16 and 1700's. The sheer age of this city gives it an old world flavor, but the fact that so many of these structures were built to last has enabled a level of preservation that makes you feel you have stepped back in time.

Merida is the capital city of the state of Yucatan, known as "White City" because of the large use of white limestone and white paint this traditional city depicts much of the splendor of Colonial Mexico.

Merida is nothing like Cancun or Playa del Carmen and if you want to experience Mexican culture while staying relatively close to the Caribbean Sea then Merida is a great place to go. Merida is a safe place to visit and the people are warm and friendly.

Being centrally located, Merida is a practical hub to explore numerous ruin sites and ecological wonders. Many charters fly into Merida or you can take a four-hour bus ride from Cancun. There are also two highways connecting Cancun and Merida plus many roads winding their way through the jungle from Tulum.

There are many great places to go and wonderful things to see in the Yucatan. Our friend Scott Wormwood is originally from the US but has lived here in the Yucatan for almost twenty years. Most of that time he has been employed by a number of tour related companies, as well as organizing and conducting trips himself. Over the years he has guided thousands of people.

"La Casa Lorenzo is a beautiful Bed and Breakfast just a few blocks away from the Plaza Grande and the city sights with a wonderful swimming pool and an extremely peaceful quality."

"My wife and I recently visited Merida for the second time together. We stayed at the La Casa Lorenzo for a total of 6 nights and found this B & B to be truly a beautiful oasis in the city of Merida. This lovely B & B is new and all the rooms are tastefully finished with probably the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on. Your host is a gentle giant of a man who provides outstanding services. We will be back."

"Our host, Larry, offered us the warmest hospitality from the start. We stayed at his delightful B&B for 8 nights and immediately felt right at home. Our room was large and comfortable with a large bathroom ensuite. La Casa Lorenzo's central location offers an easy walk into Plaza Grande where one can experience the activities of a vibrant community. To say that our stay at Casa Lorenzo was pleasant is an understatement! Five stars all the way! We hope to return!"

"The rooms were an excellent value. The bathrooms are the most spacious I have ever seen. I liked the room safes that allowed you to keep everything locked up. I would definitely stay again and would recommend to my friends. Very decent walking distance to the main square."

"The location was perfect as it's far away from downtown to be very quiet and close enough to walk pretty much anywhere! The B&B is cozy and welcoming and the amenities are just what we needed including free Wi-Fi for guests."

"We spent 10 glorious days in Merida at La Casa Lorenzo. Larry is a fabulous host and he made our stay most memorable. The rooms are great and the bathrooms are large with great water pressure, which most places do not have. We are so lucky that we found this place and now have a new friend!"

"In February I spent a few days at La Casa Lorenzo in beautiful Merida, Mexico. I had a great time! The room was huge, new, colorful. The mattress was amazingly comfortable, and the sheets were deliciously soft. Larry the owner, is extremely friendly, helpful and interesting, and has great conversation. He goes out of his way to
make you feel comfortable, without interfering with your privacy. I can't wait to have the opportunity to go back!"

"We found the environment very comfortable and relaxing. Our host, Lorenzo, was very well informed on the local activities and attractions. We found the rooms to be very pleasant and spacious. The bathrooms were just beautiful with all local tile and wonderful showers. We enjoyed our breakfast daily in the wonderful outside kitchen. The weather was quite warm during our visit but we cooled very quickly with a couple of dips each day in La Casa Lorenzo's beautiful pool."
