    Merida is a very cool city with a lot of culture. It is about 3 1/2 hours away from Tulum by car. It is a must see city if you are in the area.

    Classically Yucatan. Not the Mexico of beaches and bars, but the old Mexico of colonial architecture, Mayan pyramids and turquoise blue cenote watering holes. Beautiful historic downtown and the perfect base of operations for exploring the inner Peninsula.

    The biggest city on the Yucatan Peninsula, but it still feels like a village downtown. The city has been very proactive in keeping the center of the city vibrant, and sponsors live music and other events every night of the week. The colonial buildings are gorgeous (many getting redone by expats), and the market is massive and fascinating.

    A charming city with great food, museums, and the occasional dance performance in the city square.

    This city is wonderful. It is a very friendly city with lots to see and do. At night, you can hang out and listen to local Trio's playing in the Zocalo.

Description

As the capital of the Yucatan state, Merida is rich with sensual delights. Colonial sights, culinary adventures, the feel of hand-woven hammocks or embroidered blouses, the sounds of a city growing larger by the minute ... Merida is a place for travelers looking to dive into Mexican culture head first. If your idea of a Yucatan vacation requires more than just sitting on a beach, Merida offers urban delights like museums, cheap lodging and hostels, cathedrals and busy plazas. Plus, it's less than an hour's drive or bus trip to several national parks and ruins (including Chichen Itza).
