A really cool little spot in Merida. The shop was great with really interesting and nice things - not just the same old tourist stuff you get everywhere. The staff were really friendly and the courtyard cafe was lovely.

We only stopped in to check out the space and have a few refreshments but twice a week, they have films and dinners for a very reasonable price with outdoor and indoor screening rooms. Seemed like a perfect place to make friends for those looking for travel buddies or just someone to meet in a busy city. Was really impressed by the friendliness of the staff.

Casa de Cultura is a must stop on your itinerary. It offers yoga classes, work shops, streams movies, has a great little restaurant and gift shop. Oh and don't miss the House and Garden Tour.

It's an amazing place to meet people.
Paula, the owner has done an excellent job in creating this little cultural oasis. She has great knowledge of Merida and surroundings and gladly shares the information.

We stopped by LA68 to check it out. We had a couple of beers and some of the best gazpacho I have ever had. The open air space was really quiet and filled with beautiful plants. Vane was a great waitress and the owner was very nice. The shops have a great selection of items, most of which I did not see elsewhere. I cannot wait to go back to eat and catch a movie.

This place is fantastic!! We went to a movie there, saw an early showing at 5pm so we were at the indoor screen and had the place to ourselves. I watched the movie while lying in a hammock and eating a hearty and tasty meal provided by the little restaurant there. Fantastic movie going experience. The gifts store had some cool stuff - we bought a few things there as gifts. We did the tour of houses on Wed. morning which was fun - got to see the inside of some beautiful homes which we would otherwise have never known were even there. Check it out!
