Paseo de Montejo, Merida

4.5
#1 of 113 in Things to do in Merida
Architectural Building Landmark
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. Use our Merida holiday planner to arrange your visit to Paseo de Montejo and other attractions in Merida.

  • The perfect mix of colonial, new and old, suddenly there are cafes and restaurantitos, houses, even that many were demolished 30 years ago for lack of cultural heritage in those years, now already everything is cared for as if it were Paris! I recommend a return drive carriage, frosted coconut in the Colon, to turn to the Canton Palace (Museum of anthropology and history), a coffee in pistachio, hispedarte in the Conqueror or better still roses and CHOCOLATES and Friday night in the auction show, Sundays there are Earth, right there you can rent a bike! Oh and of course a shell of the Montejo Breadmaker!

  • Although somewhat separated from the historic center, Paseo de Montejo is also history in itself. Beautiful tree-lined Avenue flanked by notable houses and museums. Recommended your travel and take to visit the Museum of Archeology.

  • Come to Merida and not explore on foot, by bicycle or in a carriage pulled by a horse, is not having come to this magical city. It is a short walk from the reform and you will find many restaurants, ice cream parlours, cafés. Preference must travel it night to enjoy also the lighting.
