Mérida, at Last

Mérida, México
November 2016

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.



  1. I went to Merida last August and fall in love for the city, the people, the food and the colour are stunning and has such a rich and interesting history. Really enjoyed reading your post, sounds that you also had lots of fun 🙂 Ana xx
