Sofia was great. I needed to arrive a day earlier and it was no problem and I also needed to extended by a day which wasn't a problem either. The house and all the people (+dogs) are lovely. The meals were fantastic, Sophia prepared amazing local meals every day for me. It was very easy to get to and from the center of Merida, which was only 15-20 mins by bus/collectivio. Sophia helped me get into the center of town on my first day there. She also showed my around Merida itself and helped me in getting to and from the beach. The room was great and very tidy. I felt like I was at home the whole time. I would definitely stay again! Thanks Sofia!
This was an amazing week that totally surpassed my expectations! Sofia and her family were welcoming and friendly. She showed me around and went out of her way to ensure I had a great stay! The food was amazing and I was treated to local cuisine and plenty of it! I would highly recommend Sofia to others - particularly solo travellers like me who could do with some extra guidance!
