Third and fourth visit...February and July 2011

Well here we are back again for our third visit so far to Merida.  This is the trip that we finally pinned down the place we wanted to buy. We had our three main contenders to re-visit this trip plus some other new properties that we thought were interesting enough to visit. But more about the house hunt later.

We brought a friend down with us this time even though we were only here for 5 days and we had a ball showing them around Merida. They also loved everything about it, especially the place we stayed at. We like to 'try-out' a new house each time we come down and this time was no exception. Funnily enough we were actually staying back on Calle 51 just a block down from the first place we stayed at on our inaugural visit...ha, funny I hear you say!

This was a little Henry Ponce house and really well done. Actually all three places we had stayed have been amazingly beautiful and we have been really lucky since we just picked them from off the internet not knowing anything about them.

We stayed here in February 2011 just for the week and now we are back again staying here on Calle 51 for the month of July while we signed the house papers and got the keys ect.

    Hi Darren and Wade, we are Gary and John. We are planning our second trip to Merida. I have just discovered all these wonderful blogs. Thank you for your's. We are looking for a place to stay for 10 days in November. Where did you find these wonderful places? We have sold our home and we are planning to relocate to Merida and rent a while.

  2. Hey Gary and John...thanks for the message. We have rented all our houses through LeAnn from Mexicointernational. She ended up being our agent as well but LeAnn found all the houses for me and at a budget I could afford. Contact her, she is awesome..and if she doesn't have the exact house to rent she will find one for you.
