  • Seriously- rent a car and explore the Ruta Puuc! We traveled with our 10 month old, so opted for our own vehicle and the freedom that comes with that, and we are so glad we did. It was last minute, bu...  more »

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.
