NileGuide Expert tip:

Keith offers the tour on Wednesday mornings between the beginning of October and the end of March.


One of the most popular walking tours of Merida is offered by the English Language Library and tour guide Keith Heitke: the House and Garden Tour, which is offered on Wednesdays from the beginning of October to the end of March. Participants gather at the Library for an introductory chat with Heitke who explains the history of Merida's colonial and henequen-era history home building and gives an overview of architectural styles. Heitke then takes the group to 3-5 fine private homes and B&Bs, which normally are not open to the public. Frequently, the owners themselves will greet you and tell their stories of renovating centuries-old buildings in the Historic Center.
