A landmark in the heart of Mérida

This historic hotel was once owned by Governor Rodrigo Flores de Aldana during the 17th century.

The current owner’s mother inherited the property, who left the stunning mansion to her son, Don Raul Casares G Canton. As the current owner, he has invested in recovering the historical building and restoring the magical splendor of its rich past.

Now it is a memorial to Don Raul’s grandparents and his own childhood memories. Between maintaining the original architectural details, involving local artists to paint masterpieces in this Yucatan hotel, and hiring the top engineers to fulfill this vision, Mansion Merida has been converted into a luxury boutique hotel after five years of hard work.

The original property opened in the year 1644.
