  • Place of visit required day or night despite the insecurity in the country, although in Mérida it feels something more secure. Beautiful place very well preserved, which transports you to better times. Don't forget to visit him, walking by their surroundings, sit, etc. I never tire of doing so. It even seems that I am in another country. Conservenla thus forever please.

  • Historic site.
  • The hero liberator of the americas, Simon Bolivar square. Ideal for breaks outdoors in the heart of the city. Downtown everything, just steps away from the first station of the cable car, right in front, the Palace of the governorate, and to the East the Cathedral of Mérida.

  • The historic center of Mérida is well maintained although it fails the garbage collection. Very nice lit square on Christmas nights.

  • It is a very nice place, but how in all city must take into account the insecurity in the evening. Don't forget to buy one super sighs that sell on the street.

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.
