    Surprisingly this Government building has murals and paintings in its interior. It is worth to admire them.

    If the building is not in use, you can pretty open in There are guards in front of the door, but do not be put off. In the building several large paintings on da the Mayans. It is not the most cheerful paintings, but some are really worth to watch.

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.
