Merida

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Yucatan Peninsula  /  Yucatan  /  Merida
(12,000+ reviews from top 30 attractions)
Sightseeing Historic Sites Museums
Yucatan's busy capital, Merida remains a mid-sized urban center offering an impressive list of cultural activities, eclectic nightlife, and a chance to see tropical examples of French and Italian architecture. Sightseeing in Merida can seem a bit frenetic, as the heart of the city features mostly one-way streets consistently packed with cars and buses. On the flip side, you can walk to most attractions, taking as much time as you need to soak in Merida's rich history, art, and tradition. Locals love to gather in the city's charming parks and plazas, socializing or attending live performances, while many restaurants spill out into the streets, offering alfresco dining and hosting free tango and salsa events. Add Merida and other destinations to your itinerary using our Mexico vacation builder, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
