We have just returned from a week vacation at cascadas de Merida, and could not have been more pleased of picking this little jewel for our home away from home in Merida. We arrived late on our first day, and charming Ellyne was looking out for our arrival outside as concerned as any sweet mom would be. From our first to our last day, Ellyne and Chucho were the most gracious hosts. Ellyne took the time every day to recommend places to visit and things to do, and even went as far as writing down directions for us so we would not get lost. The breakfast we had each day were simply to die for, each morning we were treated to fresh fruits, fresh juice, and a variety of home made breakfast (thank you Miguel ;) ), and every afternoon after hot long days, Ellyne would have fresh fruit juice ready for us (trying my best to replicate them in my vitamix). Beer, and sodas were always available and frozen bottles of water which Ellyne made sure we took with us during our excursions were SO MUCH appreciated. During our stay Ellyne and Chucho invited us to tag along with them to a splendid Hacienda to enjoy a wonderful meal and a lovely evening listening to a Mozart quartet. Additionally our vacation was a unique experience, beause we obviously would never had as much information on the culture of the Mayans if it was not for Ellyne and Chucho sharing delightful stories. This B&B is its own little paradise, the casita we stayed in was lovely, and the shower is uniquely designed and truly one of a kind, ressembling a private Mayan waterfall. The pool was a treat every morning to get my excercise in, and a blessing to escape from the heat. We came to Cascadas de Merida alone and left with two new friends, and memories to last us a life time.
