A LOT has happened to both of us since those early days. John left Texas and ended up in Paris, first modeling and then designing for Hermes and Christian Lacroix. In 2001 he came to Merida with his then partner, Josh Ramos, a textile designer who specialized in home furnishings.
Over the years, they both designed and renovated 15+ homes in Merida Centro for themselves and clients. Some of these homes are available to rent for your holiday through their agency, Urbano Rentals. They are, large and small, all spectacular. They rent for $150 a night for the charming one bedroom, Casa Ermita in the low season, to $1500 a night for the palatial Hacienda San Antonio during the holidays.
