So, visit Merida… ✅, stay in a hostel… ✅ The next thing to figure out is which hostel is more convenient to stay, well well mi amigo, Barrio Vivo is the answer and here are some reasons:
WE ARE TRAVELLERS + LOCALS
Barrio Vivo is a family of travellers just like you! We love traveling around the world and this is what we have been doing the past years. Exploring new places is our passion, as well as immersing in new culture. For such reasons, we know that hostels are the best allies to make all this possible.
Not less important, we are from Mérida and anytime we get the chance, we go and experience all the activities this city and Yucatán have to offer. We absolutely love cenotes, Mayan Ruins and Mérida nightlife! Thanks to our experience around the world, we know what travellers are looking for and being locals, we have all the good insights. This is exactly why we have decided to create Barrio Vivo hostel. Because we are extremely passionate in what we do and to help others to live their best experience in our home.
REAL TRAVEL INFORMATION + HOSTEL ACTIVITIES
The only way to create memories is to be active. Whatever you want to do around here, Barrio Vivo will make sure you visit the best places like Mayan ruins and cenotes. But not only the mainstream ones, we are always gonna be very honest with you and we are gonna help you out with those secret travel spots only locals know. So you can visit special places with basically no people around and take amazing pictures; all this without breaking the bank!
We perfectly know that eco-activities and walking around Mérida all day long can be exhausting! We all need a day once in a while to just stay in and chill. Don’t worry, we thought about that. If you feel like not doing much, there will always be something going on here at Barrio Vivo. From pizza nights and foosball tournaments to cooking lessons and relax by the pool. We got you covered!
WE ARE ONE STEP FROM ADVENTURE
Barrio Vivo is walking distance from all the places of interest of the city. If you need to go further, the bus stop right in front of the hostel will take you to any place in Mérida. If all you want is chill, right in front of us we have the beautiful La Ermita park where you can relax under the shade of a tree.
If this is not enough, we are only a few blocks away from the main bus station. This is great for two reasons. 1. It means that when you arrive in Mérida you don’t have to carry your backpack for too long. 2. You have an incredible quick connection to any Yucatán Penísula attraction like: Valladolid, Chichen Itza, Izamál, Cancún, Campeche, Tulum and many other Mexican destinations.
NEW FRIENDS FOR LIFE
Travelling is a way more fun when shared. It’s not only about the places you visit, it’s about the people you meet. We love making new friends from all around the world and discovering new cultures. No matters how different people can be, we are all part of the same world.
We absolutely believe in community, so we have created nice common spaces where you can make new friends, interact with them and share your culture. We want you to know that no matter where you come from, you are always welcome here at Barrio Vivo.There is always gonna be someone to hang one with to make sure Barrio Vivo will be your home away from home.
YOU WILL FEEL COZY
When creating this new project, we didn’t want to sacrifice comfort and coziness. We know how important it is to have a good sleep when travelling to recharge batteries and keep exploring new places.This is why we have comfy beds with curtains to ensure you have all the privacy you need.
If this wasn’t enough, we have very nice common areas where you can relax by the pool, read in the hammock while feeling the breeze or journaling in a colonial style house. All you need to appreciate the nice weather of Mérida.
