Mérida – Welcome to the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatan. While much of the peninsula is famed for its resorts, Mérida is the epicentre of Yucatan culture, history and pride.

When ready, browse vacation packages to Mérida:

The peaceful paradise, #Mérida, features a blend of colonial houses and Mayan ruins between which the city shares its heritage. Begin your #vacation at Plaza Grande and #explore the surrounding pastel streets filled with architectural treasures and cool parks.

Mérida’s many museums cover everything from Yucatan song to the folk arts of Mexico. The Museum of The City of Mérida charts the rich and sometimes turbulent history of Yucatan’s capital. #Visit the Yucatan’s Anthropology and History Museum and nearby, the Great Museum of the Mayan World which creates a striking contrast to Mérida’s historic streetscapes.

Mérida is surrounded by ancient Mayan cities such as Dzibilchaltun, Mayapan, Uxmal, and Chichén Itza. The Yucatan Peninsula has an incredible network of over 6000 cenotes. Some, such as the Sacred Cenote of Chichén Itza, were considered portals to the afterlife.

Mérida is undoubtedly one of the coolest and most cultural cities in Mexico.

For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.

    Querétaro, Guanajuato State, Jalisco state, Nuevo Leon State and Oaxaca City are all worth a travel guide. Architecture, cuisine, beautiful scenery, good weather and cultural events make them great places to visit. And they can be traveled safely for those who have safety concerns

    Merida was Merida before the conquistadors. It was a mayan city named T'ho.

    Visitè la ciudad de Mérida hace 2 dìas.
    Disfrutè una deliciosa comida Yucateca en el rest. Chaya Maya, que está a unos pasos de la plaza principal.

    I just visited Merida 2 days ago and ate at Chaya Maya rest. located steps away from the main plaza.
    Highly recommend to enjoy such authentic Yucatan cuisine.

    Funny to say that the video’s thumbnail isn’t Mérida. It’s Valladolid. A small city halfway between Mérida and Cancún.

    Great video by the way
