Welcome to Casa Monjas Yucatan, ideally situated in the historic city of Merida on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. In our intimate guesthouse you will experience the heart and soul of an 18th century Spanish colonial home with its arched porticos, courtyards, tropical gardens and fountains. Casa Monjas has the perfect location for your Merida vacation. Across the street from a 16th century Convent, our house is less than two blocks from the main Zocalo. This wonderful square, with its tree filled park, ancient cathedral and ornate government buildings reveals traditional Yucatecan life from dawn until well after midnight.
We first saw Casa Monjas in February of 2004. Although the house had not been lived in for twenty years, it still retained vestiges of its original grandeur. The last three years has been spent renovating the existing structure. During these renovations we were able to interject modern standards of comfort while preserving a centuries-old look and spirit.
Casa Monjas is not a hotel. We are an intimate guesthouse that offers our guests the more personal experience of living in a beautiful colonial home while visiting one of the most fascinating cities in Mexico. We know you value your space and privacy ... especially when you travel... so we have only two guest suites. By strictly limiting the number of guests in our home, we can be assured that everyone who has the pleasure of staying here can enjoy the peace and serenity of this historic environment.
