I loved everything about Medio Mundo, from the beautiful intense blue wall colors to the art, gorgeous gardens, hearty breakfasts, and peaceful atmosphere. The nights were cool (no need for air conditioning at all). It was great to sleep with the window shutters open and feel the breeze and hear the fountain in the garden below.
Big bathroom/dressing room with plenty of storage space and large shower. My window in the bathroom opened onto the top of an old mango tree. Nice chairs on the terrace to relax with a cup of coffee or tea.
The owners, Nelson and Nicole and their son, were friendly and helpful and made us feel like we were staying in the home of friends.
The inn is 4 easy walking blocks to the main plaza with Parque Santa Lucia only 2 blocks away where there are a couple of good restaurants -- La Trotto & Apoala at the park and Cafe Santa Lucia across the street. There's even a Dairy Queen, if you need an American ice cream, and a wonderful Mexican chocolate shop. On the weekends the park is filled with vendors and music.
About the ice cream -- you can't miss Helados Colon off the main plaza next to the Palacio de Gobierno. Terrific and unusual flavors at an ice cream shop that's been around for decades. Sit outside on the terrace and people watch.
There's WIFI in the room -- ours worked well. And there's a nice little shop in the front office. The items are of good quality and reasonable prices.
And best of all? The people are super friendly, helpful, and fun. I found this to be the case everywhere we went in Merida and Yucatan. Such a lovely part of the world. And Medio Mundo is a special experience not to be missed.
