Merida

4.3
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. Merida is in Yucatan. Plan the details of your Merida holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Mexico itinerary maker app .

Where to stay in Merida

Yucatan's capital and cultural hub offers a range of accommodations concentrated almost entirely around its historical center, offering convenient access to the architectural marvels and museums that make the city a popular destination. Look in the streets surrounding Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan for some basic but perfectly located budget-friendly options. If the center feels too full of tourists, head north to the less frenetic neighborhood of Montes de Ame, where you can find some laidback private rentals.
