If you can’t afford a villa à la my last post, consider shacking up at one of these places.
The Rustic: Casa Santana in Merida – This place got rave reviews on trip advisor (and I quote… “I didn’t really want to write a review because I want to keep Casa Santana all to myself, but better angels have prevailed upon me to do the right thing. Casa Santana is a magical, wonderful place. Behind a plain facade is a unique, well decorated, relaxing oasis….” Really, everybody just kept gushing). Rooms are around $100 per night.
More luxe than rustic (but it’s still part of an old building so I’m going to count it): Hacienda Puerta Campeche. A little pricier (around $230), but it’s definitely worth a splurge in order to take this plunge…
The pool is actually flowing through a row of old colonial houses! (Which technically means it’s not a hacienda, but we’ll let them off the hook for having such a cool idea.) And then, just because they can, they throw a few hammocks around.
Travel + Leisure also highlighted the Hacienda in its list of 50 romantic places throughout the world.
