Built on the remains of an ancient Mayan city, Merida is now a large, cosmopolitan city, but with a rich cultural heritage, charming colonial historic centre and stunning countryside surrounds. Narrow streets open out onto leafy plazas, perfect for watching the world go by with a coffee, while bustling markets and lively bars give the city an infectious energy.

As the cultural capital of the Yucatán Peninsula, Merida boasts more than its share of museums, galleries, historic sites and grand architecture, all easily explored as you wander its characterful streets. Away from the city’s buzz, swim in the mysterious beauty of the Yucatan’s cenotes, mountain bike through spectacular countryside, and visit the extraordinary Mayan archaeological sites of Chichén-Itzá and Uxmal.
