EXPLORE Merida
WHY Merida IS AWESOME
  • Dzibilchaltún

    About 10 miles north of the city, you will encounter this fascinating archeological site. A small city of ruins, the site boasts the Temple of the Seven Dolls, so named for the artifacts originally found there. There is also a cenote in the center of Dzibilchaltún in which plenty of fossils and archeological remains have also been found.

  • Paseo de Montejo

    Perhaps the most prominent avenue in the city, this is a can’t-miss. Here you’ll find some of the city’s most historic monuments; the avenue was created originally to offer farmers and townspeople places in which to gather and socialize—and it still is quite the gathering place today.

  • The Food

    While sightseeing here is great, many come to Merida for a culinary adventure. There are a few local markets boasting the freshest, most exotic produce available. The restaurants range from gourmet to local eats—there are also several restaurants that offer visitors cooking classes.
