A unique and quaint hotel...
Come and experience our hospitality...
Located at the heart of Merida´s historic center facing the opera house
and the university of Yucatan, within walking distance to the main
square, museums, cathedral, shops and colonial parks.
Getting to the Hotel:
Taxis are readily available at the airport and the fare to the hotel is around 100 pesos (US$10). The journey time should be around 15 minutes.
Transfers from the airport are available at around US$30 for 2 - 6 people.
Central Mérida is a grid of one-way streets, numbered sequentially. The streets running roughly west-east have odd numbers and those running roughly north-south have even numbers. What's more, where Calle 59 takes traffic one way to the east, Calle 57 and 61 take traffic one way to the west etc. Therefore it is easy to navigate to a particular address, though the central streets are all very narrow and extremely busy.
Note that the weekly "Sunday in Mérida" festivities involve the closing of Calle 60 to vehicular traffic and the whole of the historic center will be very busy on this day.
The Hotel Caribe is located on the Parque Hidalgo on the corner of Calle 59 and 60 (it is in the far corner of the square). If you call a bell boy over from the hotel he will take in your luggage and direct you to the car park, which is one block away.
From Mérida airport: From the airport, you’ll enter the city on Avenida Itzaes, which runs approximately in a north-south direction just west of the center. After you have passed the Zoo, turn right down Calle 59 and look for the Parque Hidalgo and the hotel on your right at the junction with Calle 60.
From Cancun airport: From the airport, follow the signs for Merida and Chichen Itza on the toll (“quota”) highway #180. You can also take the free (libre) highway #180, but this will take longer because of the speed bumps or “topes” at the entrance and exit to every town. The toll and free highways merge about 40 miles outside of Merida. Keep following the signs for Merida “centro” and you will cross a junction with the periferico (ring road) and enter the city on Calle 65. In the center of town, turn right on Calle 60 and look for the hotel and the Parque Hidalgo on your right after the junction with Calle 61.
The hotel will refund charges for parking at the lot close to the hotel (on Calle 60). This parking lot is closed on Sundays (remember to move your car on Saturday night if you want to use it on Sunday!) but an alternative around the corner on Calle 55 is available.
