Paseo de Montejo, Merida

(4.5/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It was a very hot day, granted, but it seemed there was less to explore and see here than other parts of Merida. There were fancy buildings and a starbucks so if that's your thing you'll like it. But ...  more »
  • Beautiful for a spectacular afternoon, paseo de Montejo can walk calmly entering museums, eat, take an ice cream and much more

  • It is an avenue, away from the historic centre on foot, must travel it by car or calandria, is long but beautiful, seen the opulence of the henequen era and the styles of construction, houses are taken from stories, beautiful view and history, no doubt would live on the Paseo Montejo. It must be said that the calandria costs $450 MX, for 4 people, and is lindon you go explaining the Coachman, but it made me expensive, my recommendation is getting on the turibus, which has several stops, pay $120 per adult and it it can go all day if you want to, get, walk go for a sorbet and take pictures and go onto the turibus for exploring other areas.
