A Place To Relax

All rooms have overhead fans.. These colorful spaces of yellows, orange, and purple have three doors opening into the charming and luscious garden with plants that grow like "Jack and the Beanstalk".  One of the wonderful aspects of living in Merida is the ability to live outdoors. Casa Taurus offers a number of outdoor living opportunities, including a morning breakfast patio just outside the kitchen, a rear terrace covered with old world roof tiles that is seductively furnished with comfortable seating for reading or visiting.  And for sunbathing and moon gazing, there is the rooftop terrace.

Casa Taurus couldn’t be in a better location! Behind the colonial facade, you’ll find yourself in a private and quiet colorful retreat. Step outside, and you are just two blocks from Calle 60, the main avenue in the Centro Historico, and just four blocks from the zocalo, the center of town. Restaurants, shopping, museums, events and more are just a stroll away from the front door of this charming vacation rental.

And it’s really easy to take a public bus to the beach in Progreso. The bus stop is at Calle 64 and Calle 57, just steps away from the front door, and the bus ride costs less than $2.00 USD.
