BAI Showcase of Homes 2019

The Centro will be electric with excitement on Sunday when hundreds of ticket-holders get a glimpse inside some of the historic district’s most beautiful homes.

The Merida Showcase of Homes is one of Fundacion BAI’s biggest fundraisers, crucial to helping the nonprofit fulfill its mission of providing HIV/AIDS education and testing, and preventing teen pregnancies in Yucatan.

BAI Showcase of Homes 2019

This is the 11th edition of the Merida Showcase of Homes, and six residents have opened their private homes to the self-guided walking tour. (Here is a wrap-up of last year’s Showcase.)

The Showcase is helpful to expats who want decorating and design ideas to take back to their own Centro homes. It is also popular with design and architecture students.
