The International Mayab Buddy Program pairs you with carefully selected Anahuac Mayab students, who will offer their help whenever you need it, and will be among your first friends in the University. You'll see that they can make a world of difference for you, now that you are about to arrive. Join the Program!
The Anahuac Mayab University has created, for your benefit, the "International Mayab Buddy Program," comprised of students who are studying their degree with us and who will accompany you during your stay in Merida. Even before you arrive, you Mayab Buddy will contact you to orientate you in relation to questions you might have about the city and the university.
Your Buddy will receive you on arrival at the airport or bus station, and help you find the right accommodation according to your needs *.
If you decide to participate in the International Mayab Buddy Program, we are committed to:
* You must notice your Mayab Buddy previous to your arrival.
The International Office through the International Mayab Buddy Program accompanies the exchange students to find accommodation according to their preferences and needs.
We recommend that you search for permanent accommodation once you have arrived in Mérida, so you should look for a temporary accommodation upon arrival.
Below we give a list of hostels for your consideration:
www.nomadastravel.com (many exchange students have chosen this option in previous semesters).
If you do not decide on any of these, we recommend you to find a hotel or hostel in the city center, which besides being cheaper, have more accessible transportation in terms of taxis, buses and the "Destino Anahuac" bus to the University.
Here are some links for information on hotels in the city:
