Welcome to Mérida, arrive in the afternoon after crossing the states of Chiapas, Tabasco, and Campeche to the vibrant capital of the Mexican state of Yucatán.
You will like this town, for real. Despite the mosquitoes and intense heat, everything else is awesome. There is a vitality of life here that is truly exceptional. This city of about a million people shuts down major thoroughfares on a weekly basis for free street festivals, concerts, dancing, interactive shows, vendors, pedestrianism, and biking.
