Mérida, Mexico || Hotel Mansión Mérida

Mansión Mérida on the Park Hotel Mérida Yucatán Mexico There are few hotels I’ve been to in my life that are more gorgeous, more breath-taking, and more memorable than today’s hotel in Mérida, Mexico.

Mansión Mérida on the Park.

Otherwise known as a tropical paradise given a European twist.

A rich, luxurious oasis in one of Mexico’s most beautiful and SAFE cities… Mérida!

This hotel is a magical place.

A place of dreams…

A stunning hacienda-turned-boutique hotel filled with the most beautiful tile work, lush palm trees, jaw-dropping chandeliers, and prettiest bedrooms you’ll find in the entire world…Mansión Mérida on the Park Hotel Mérida Yucatán Mexico This hotel really is a little slice of 19th century Europe in the middle of the Yucatán.

Actually all of Mérida feels like a little slice of Europe in Mexico, really. There’s even an avenue that’s designed after the Champs-Élysées where you’ll find one of my other favorite spots in Mérida. But Mansión Mérida’s location, tucked right next the Cathedral, is just about as perfect as you’ll find in the entire city.Mansión Mérida on the Park Hotel Mérida Yucatán MexicoCare to step inside this Mexican oasis?
