Merida, Yucatan Peninsula
Casa de Dos Tortugas is a Bed and Breakfast property and not a vacation rental. The owners will share with you a beautiful Colonial home built in 1840 with the main house still with the original hand made and hand painted amazing pasta tiled floors, very high ceilings and beautiful antique furniture. It is ideally located within a short walk from the Plaza Grande, Santiago Square and the bus station. This means you have access to all the restaurants, theatres, museums and shopping within a 10 minute walk. There is always something exciting to walk to such as free folkloric concerts in the parks, dancing in the streets on the weekends and big band music and dancing on Sundays in the Plaza Grande.

We have two totally separate and self-contained bedroom suites to offer our guests. Both are very spacious and have wardrobes, air conditioning,...

Prior to heading to Merida, we had communicated with the owners, Violet and Stuart, and arranged to have them pick us up at the airport. This worked very well and it was really nice to have someone meet us at the airport...

Violet and Stuart are the perfect hosts. Their home is one of the loveliest bed and breakasts in which Iwe have ever stayed. They were so helpful in guiding us in what was happening in the city, where to eat, directions, etc. The home itself is beautiful- high ceilings, lovely breezy outdoor areas, two pools and great outdoor seating areas...
