An ideal location to escape the tourists and explore the Yucatan. Rather than stay in a commercial hotel or an all-inclusive, you will stay in a beautiful century-old home complete with 18-foot ceilings, a lovely garden, and a beautiful pool. Casa Lunita is located in the center of the small, yet bustling Villa de Baca.
The century-old house has been minimally restored with masonry repair, additional bathrooms, upgraded electricity and plumbing, internet, and a modern kitchen— while keeping intact its original character.
The sala is equipped with a dining table (for 8), a sitting area, a small library, and a TV. The dining room has a traditional colonial dining area (for 8-10 people). The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, oven, range, and small appliances. The courtyard offers poolside seating and 2 private garden seating areas. There is a small terrace on the roof. The portico has a large sitting area with hammocks.
The garden features orange, lime, sour orange, coconut, and palm trees in addition to native and ornamental plants, succulents, and cycads—and an ongoing and ever-changing array of flowers and herbs.
The people of Baca are warm and friendly. The central plaza, market, church, and playground are teeming with activity. Vendors sell fresh produce, meat, and fish. There are many options for food delivery, which could be Yucatecan cuisine or a variety of other home-style meals, grilled meats, specialty pizzas, fish, ceviche, or international options. Local vendors also sell their own honey and honey products, hammocks, piñatas, and artwork. Baca is also home to an excellent Thai restaurant, La Casa de Los Lotos, associated with the Fundacion de Bienestar Natural, a healing center, and clinic. It has a lovely aquatic garden featuring lotuses, koi, a small cenote, amethysts, and other precious stones. There is a local hacienda that offers horseback riding, Hacienda Zamná.
Bus/combi/taxi service is readily available to Merida and beyond.
