Paseo de Montejo, Merida

4.5
Take a stroll down the pedestrianized main avenue of Paseo de Montejo, taking in the wonderful European-style architecture of the mansions, local street performers, and impressive artworks. The avenue makes a good spot for peaceful people-watching, or an afternoon amble with a tasty ice cream. Stop for a coffee and watch the daily activities, or peruse one of the museums on the strip. Bring some water and sunscreen along with you, as there isn’t much shade to be found on the avenue. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Merida holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Paseo de Montejo and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    Paseo de Montejo is a unique experience. The ancient houses reveal a unique historical epoch. The beautiful Canton Palace with its Museum is extraordinary. And then finish with a delicious sorbet in the Colon Sorbetería. Unmatched.

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.
