The Merida English Language Library offers these tours November thru March, every Tuesday from 9-noonish. A tour guide explains a bit of the history of Merida to set the stage for the tour. Attendees are divided into groups (30 in our group...there were 3 groups each with a guide) Three types of homes were shown to us: one just being remodeled, one which had been in move in condition with minor decorating changes, and a third which had been completely remodeled according to the strict guidelines of the Historical Code. (First one or two rooms must remain historically accurate, which allows the beautiful tile work to be salvaged!)
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is to leave room for the fact that the weather is HOT and the walking distance is a bit arduous on arthritic knees (as mine are). Also care needs to be taken walking on uneven sidewalks, holes and high curbs. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour however! Our guide was excellent, group friendly....and the library anterior tree covered patio is a lovely spot to relax before heading off to other adventures.
