Plaza Grande & Santa Lucia

Remixto Picks

Around Plaza Grande

  • Cool off with a Champola

    Cool off with a Champola--Merida’s version of an ice cream float--or a scoop of sorbet made with fresh, in-season tropical fruits served with a little milk.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Apoala

    Our pick for a great dinner in Santa Lucia, this restaurant features dishes typical of Oaxaca blended with little Yucatecan spice.

  • Teatro Armando Manzanero

    Buit in 1949, this Art Deco movie theatre features of a variety of performances, plays, and movies.

  • Enjoy dancing in the streets

    From big-band Tuesdays at Parque Santiago to traditional Yucatecan dance performances in Santa Lucia on a Sunday morning, every day promises plenty of opportunities to put on your dancing shoes.
