Where to stay in Merida

An established tourist destination for adventurers and extreme sports enthusiasts, Merida offers ample accommodations for its guests. The town flanks Highway 7, and accommodations spread across the neighborhoods--although the main bulk of options cluster in the eastern end of town. Choose from small, family-run posadas (guesthouses) set in old colonial-era houses, or larger purpose-built hotels. Head up the surrounding hills for outdoor adventure resorts offering a range of activities and tour booking services, as well as rooms overlooking the undulating scenery.
