La Mejorada & Chen Bech

  • Wayan'e

    This great local taco stand is one of the best in town.  Order castacan tacos of juicy grilled pork, local chaya with egg and many other great toppings. 

  • Mercado Lucas de Galvez & San Benito

    From rows of stylists offering 10 pesos haircuts to food stands bursting with the freshest produce and meats, pick up a few avocados and get lost in the maze of vendors.

  • Stroll through the original city gate

    Stroll east from the main plaza along Calle 61, and pass under the city's original arched gateway - the "arco de los dragones" and its sister gate one block south.

  • Old Railway Station

    Explore the fascinating rail history of Merida, starting with the stunning old railway station that now houses the city's art school. 

  • Traditional cuisine at Los Almendros

    This restaurant is an institution--committed to Yucatecan cuisine for more than five decades. The decor has an old-school-feel, but the food is first-rate.

  • Sip the night away at Merida’s hip mescaleria, "La Fundacion"

    Sip on mezcal-based cocktails while dancing Cumbia to the latest sounds from Merida’s hottest DJs. Busy most nights, this is a great late-night local hangout.
