Your personal, expert guide will meet you at your hotel at 9am for this tour of the historical center of the city of Mérida. The city was founded in 1542 by the son of Conquistador Francisco Montejo, who was from Mérida in Spain, and gave this capital city of Yucatán state its name.

You will start in the main square of the city (Zócalo), exploring the oldest Cathedral in the Americas, the Government House with paintings by Fernando Castro and the Municipal Palace.

You will then return to the car and head down Paseo de Montejo, the main thoroughfare into the city, modeled on the Champs-Elysees and lined with trees and large colonial houses, once the city homes of rich Hacienda owners. You will stop to take in the large Monument, ‘Monumento de la Patria’, that tells the story of Mexico, with emblems of all the Mexican states.
