Have stayed at El Conquistador numerous times over the past few years. It is not the luxury of the Hyatt or Villa Mercedes (Presidente) where I have stayed in the past. However, its refreshing to stay some place that lets you feel like you're in Merida without serious deficiencies I've experienced at some hotels
dangerous whale is about to devore some innocent people. No aren't you glad
you choose to go to Merida where there isn't any bad sea creatures around.
But these poor people decided to go to Kaboom San Lucas and this whale is hungry. It's last meal was this guy Jonas. And the whale didn't have a chance to even eat him. The food was taken right out of its' mouth.

Lots of folks just don't know about Izamal about 40 miles from Merida. It has few inhabitants. No Costco or Club Sam here. But it does have 37 churches and 76 cantinas. No book stores however there is a wooden crate with a broken umbrella in the middle on the street corner where Filipe sells the small books with caricatures (cartoons) and text below the images of these wonderful stories of romance, adventure, and football players. A few magazines adorn this newsstand; no Time or Newsweek but enjoy those like Las novelas de esta semana y vida de los artistas
Not all who travel to Merida have the smarts to book their Merida lodgings with CancunSteve.
Take for example this turkey from Baltimore who parked his cycle in the town.
He booked Conquistador with Worst Night and paid 10% more than he would have with us.
Besides he didn't have the view of Paseo Montejo as promised with his lodgings and had no one there to speak with. Again, if he only booked with us we'd of fixed things up.
Look how this putz parked her car at the local airport.
He booked lodgings with Motel dot Con; paid 11% more than if he booked this marvelous hotel with us. There are many lodging options in Merida. This one has awesome views of the Avenue.
The one this looser booked has a view of a a brick wall.
If he would have booked these lodgings with us he'd of had: a free safe in her room. free internet. flat screen cable TV
In the dump dot Con sold him no internet in the lodgings. No view either.
This drill sergent from the Mozambique army who is inspecting his solder's arms looked for a deal using Travelitis.
He did find a hotel in Merida two dollars less than ours. We admit it.
However no in room safe provided. Only a shoe box with a busted cover.
No flat-screen TV with cable but an 11 inch fat picture tube model with an old antena on the top getting in some local chanels with major interference.
Plus Hotel El Conquistador has an exercise room. Gym. Latest equipment. A great outdoor pool and deck.
Now this soldier wants to take his gun and get someone at Travelitis but they are no where to be found.
This hotel has a garden, coffee shop, restaurant, and pool area.
Room service. Safety boxes. Free valet parking.
Cable TV. And all rooms have either a terrace or balcony.
And the best archeological zones are at your doorstep.
Mexico is always making news for its growing list of archaeological discoveries, which most recently include what may be the oldest known footprints in all of the Americas, as well as a treasure trove of new ancient Mayan artifacts and human remains.
These footprints were found running through the remote Coahuila valley of Cuatro Cienegas way north of Merida.
Made by hunter-gatherers who lived in the area several thousand years ago, they may predate the Americas’ current oldest known footprints by at least two thousand years.
Closer to Merida and by far more interesting than a footprint is Labna.
Located in the Puuc Hills1 region of the Yucatán Peninsula. Situated to the south of the large Maya site of Uxmal, in the southwest of the Yucatán, Mexico not far from economical Conquistador hotel in Merida. It was incorporated with Uxmal as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.
The site is small but impressive nevertheless. Among its notable structures is a large two-storey palace (El Palacio), which is one of the longest contiguous structures in the Puuc region .

markets in Merida:
It is chaos. A trip! Mérida had taken Shopping, hacked up the pieces with scissors, stuffed them into a piñata, and then hit it with a launcher. Imagine a place as confusing, haphazard, nonsensical, noisy, and absolutely devoid of order. Now you're in the market! Enjoy.
Even calling the place a market is wrong. It’s markets! Four or five markets all loosely clumped together. Maybe there were six. Who knows? I was drinking. It’s impossible to say where one ends and the other begins, and anyway, they’re all spilling out into the streets. Want to buy a shoelace? Right there, next to the chicken parts. Next to the hammocks and local honey. And not so far from Hotel Conquistador. Down this lane, you can find (in order): yucca-candy, tailor, avocado-lady, voodoo shop, tortillas. How long must it take, before you can make sense of this madness?
Remember the narrator in Rocky Horror. I am loosing my grip I gotta hang on. See tortillas being made. Signs indicating selling and buying of gold and silver (oro y plata). A woman sleeping behind the counter where the chicken parts are sold. All near your Merida lodgings.
And there's Pancho the shoe repair man.

Despite how many times you've been to the Yucatan, there are still regions that yet to visit.
Yes, you've enjoyed lodgings in the beach resorts. Cool. But the biggest oversight is definitely Merida – namely the zocalo, shopping, and archeological zones.

And yet your travels had just never taken you to this Yucatan gem.
But then with a week of time in between a few weeks in Cancun and Tulum. It is Merida of course!

Es considerada la joya del arte plateresco más valiosa que poseemos en arquitectura civil, fue la casa del fundador de la ciudad y tiene una placa con una inscripción de 1549. En plata.
Posterior a la fundación de la ciudad de Mérida en 1542, comienza Francisco de Montejo a repartir los terrenos donde los pobladores establecerían sus hogares, como El lindo Conquistador su hospedaje en Merica (your Merida lodgings) habiendo reservado con anterioridad, toda la parte sur de la plaza grande para él. Antes de morir, en 1543, ordena a su hijo construir en ese espacio la casa donde vivirían los conquistadores; la casa se concluye en 1549 siendo Francisco de Montejo el único habitante.
La fachada de la entrada principal es la única característica de la casa que se mantiene de forma original, en la que se puede observar, en la parte superior de la entrada, el escudo de armas de los Montejo y dos guerreros españoles, en actitud vigilante, que descansan sobre las cabezas de indios vencidos.

The hotel Conquistador in Merida is your base to discover the mysteries of the Mayans. Best Mayan archeological sites nearby.
The Mayans are known as a civilization to have developed writing in pre-Colombian times.
What did the Apaches ever write? No Apache James Grishams to be sure. What did the Iroquois ever write?
The last of the Mohicans?
Their art, architecture, and math and astronomy at the time surpassed Europe by centuries.
They knew the sun was the center of the solar system, and that Venus was a planet.
And for the best Merida lodgings option select the Hotel Conquistador Merida.
El Castillo, or the Pyramid of Kukulcan in Mayan, has nine levels, with a staircase down the middle creating 18 separate terraces that represent those months. The Mayans incorporated their calendar into the architecture.
Sexy Mayan calendars with half-clothed Mayan ladies often adorned auto body part shops.
Bits across the top platform make up the 19th month of five days. Or was that the 18th month of the six days?
There are 91 steps on each of the four sides which, again with the five bits across the top, add up to the 365 days of the year.
And if someone with a mini-skirt is climbing the steps to the top, it's your lucky day unless she looks like Hilary Clinton.
If you're lodging at the Conquistador in Merida it's your lucky stay.
Each facade has 52 panels, representing the 52-year Mayan calendar cycle.
Even all those years ago, the ancient Mayans knew there was a slight error in their calculations - which we adjust with an extra day in February every four years.
Mayans would use an eclipse every 52 years to add 13 days to the calendar to correct this. Confusing?
They are the most advanced culture to exist and yet, one way or another, their calendar basically matches what we have now even though their observatory was somewhat less sophisticated than what we have today.
Their knowledge awesome!
In case you're not buying your plane tickets yet, dig this about the serpent.
At the equinox in spring and autumn, the sun aligns perfectly with one of the staircases to create triangles with light and shadows that lead down to serpent's heads.
It gives the illusion of a serpent slithering down the side.
Mayan Guy years ago where Hotel Conquistador now stands: Hey wanna beer Pepe?
Other Mayan Guy: I'm working on this calendar, but I guess if I don't finish it won't be the end of the world.
