The heart of Merida, with plenty of shops, restaurants and sites all around it. On the weekends, many of the surrounding streets are closed to cars, and shops and restaurants fill them. A great place to walk around at night when it's cool, to relax and people watch.

Great place to take in some Mexican culture and to find that souvenir you are looking for; like a hat maybe. It is central to Merida and plenty of great restaurants and attractions. Include this on your walkabout!

On Sundays the plaza is filled with stands of all sorts selling everything from food and drink to clothing, jewelry and statues. Lots of fun to wander around and shop

The cathedral is stunning inside with the largest crucifix I've ever seen. The plaza really comes to life in the evening with vendors of all sorts, many locals and tourists taking photos in front of the Merida sign. Good ice cream in the shops on the west side!

During the day or in the evening, this is the place to walk, sit and watch people. Grab an ice cream cone and take it to the park. The park welcomes everyone. Peaceful, but lively.
