Casa Lucia is close to the heart of Mérida, with Parque Santa Lucia square on its doorstep and the Plaza Principal within 4 blocks.

Casa Lucia makes a great base for a day or two at leisure in this joyful city. Today’s hotel comprises a combination of historic Mérida townhouses, with modern additions, and it has held on to its sense of place. Décor very much leans towards the traditional with period furnishings and chandeliers setting the scene, although modern comforts remain a priority. Guest rooms with air-con, a garden with fountains and an outdoor pool makes this a handy refuge from the heat of a typical Yucatecan afternoon.
