It took us a lot of time to get there but it was worth it. The buffet was extremely good!! The bathrooms weren't good but it is sort of what you expect in a rustic place. The staff was really helpful and warm

Fascinating guided tour of old henequen plantation still producing rope and other products. One hour spent in their cenote was alone worth the trip to Merida.

If you don't want to do the morning tour nor rent a car, I would take beachbums advise and hire a car and driver. There are online car hire sites for Merida and where you are staying should be able to help. The hotel may... More
