It’s taken me more than twenty years to come to Mérida. But Mérida is worth the wait.
Spanish meets Mayan meets Caribbean. A small, tropical city of colonial townhouses and colorful mansions, of narrow streets in the old centro and the wide boulevard of the cosmopolitan Paseo de Montejo. Churches galore and museums, too. The best food in the Yucatán. Chichen Itzá and Uxmal an hour or so away. A quick drive to the Gulf of México.
And the most vibrant weekend social scene at the Plaza Grande.
