A Typical Day at Casa La Barenda

January 10, 2010

Retreat to La Barenda after a day of exploring… blend up a Margarita and melt away the afternoon in the plunge pool under the waterfall as you enjoy the garden and reflect on the day. After your siesta, walk to any of the nearby parks of Santiago, Hildalgo Square, Plaza Grande or Santa Lucia where at dusk, birdsongs are the featured performance of the day.

On Saturday and Sunday nights, hear live Latin sounds and dance to the rhythms or just celebrate the night where streets are closed to traffic for pedestrians in El Centro. Enjoy the many fine outdoor restaurants that spill into the cobblestone streets. Taste Yucatecan comfort food like frijol con puerco, a spicy pork and black bean stew, and pan de cazón, a shark and tortilla pie. Feast on delicacies from the Mediterranean, Lebanon, and other regions from around the world. Mérida is a melting pot of cultures that proudly retains its own.

Browse the offerings of local artisans from gorgeous hand-painted pottery to Jewelry, clothing and antiques. Return to La Barenda after the night and lull yourself to sleep by the sound of the waterfall just outside your air conditioned rooms as you anticipate the new day.
