Beautiful walk to do alone or with friends and family, to be able to enjoy old Merida’s buildings. If you are able to go on Sunday you will also please yourself with the bikes, skates and shows around. Perfect for children.

We have seen this home/museum on YouTube and while taking a city tour bus in Merida however taking the actual tour inside is where you can really appreciate the beautiful decor and history. This was a self guided tour which lasted about 30 minutes. We recommend if your are visiting Merida.

Beautiful colonial mansions are a treat to see. Some are repurposed as museums, high end boutiques, banks and hotels. Many gave been fully restored while others await restorative surgery. Take your time strolling the length of Paseo/ stop to explore a museum or sit for a bit in one of the numerous cafes while you sip or nosh.

This is one of the few streets in Merida where you can walk/run with views on trees and beautiful old houses. Long and quiet enough for a nice walk. Please do not take a horse carriage to go for a ride in Merida. The horses are very tired and work extremely long hours standing in the sun all day long. Walk or bike. Sundays they close off the Paseo Montejo all the way into city centre for biking! You can see some very beautiful old colonial buildings but also some on the way of withering away.

You don't have to be an architectural expert to notice this street differs from all others in Merida. It's the main and only blvd in Yucatan capital, the widest and only two way street in the center.
It's named after Francisco de Montejo, Spanish conquistador who established the city when conquered the Mayans in 16 c, but the boulevard was built only in the 19c according to such European ones.
It's a pleasant walk from the Patria Monument at the northern roundabout all the way down to the center. Many nice villas along the way now turned into museums and galleries.

This loveliest street in Mérida makes a nice, leisurely walk. I started by visiting the Monumento a Las Patrias. I took an Uber there from my hotel. Ambling down the street you will see old homes from the rich past in European styles facing the tree lined street. Two homes are open. I recommend stopping at Quinta Montes Molina for a visit. As you come to the end of the Paseo you will find the Anthropology museum which was closed during my visit. If you are daring walk a block to the Santa Lucia market and eat at one of the outdoor eateries.

Walking up one side and down the other is an interesting walk. Keep your eyes open for i things on both side of the street. Palacio Colón is not worth visiting but Casa Museo Montes Melina most certainly is.

We took the romantic carriage 20 years ago so simply walked the length and back during the day this time. Websites are not always kept up to date and one of the museums that was supposed to be open, was not. Luckily I had contacted the Museo Casa Montejo directly to confirm an English tour (great but pricey). We ate at a food court behind the Museo and it was not very good. There are rifle-toting guards posted for anyone who is a bit skittish and possibly due to the large banks along the road.

This is the main avenue with all of the homes of the former plantation owners when sisal was the main cash crop of Merida. Paseo de Montejo was named after the founder of Merida, Francisco de Montejo. Our friend, Roberta, calls it the Champs Elysses of Merida. It’s a wide tree lined street and the majority of the very wealthy plantation owners built fantastic homes on this street. Most were built at the end of the 19th century.
You can take a walk or do what we did let someone else do the driving while you do the photography. You won’t regret it. It’s a walk back through time.

We toured the Paseo from Monumento A Los Montejos to Monumento A La Patria twice....on foot by day and by horse drawn carriage by night. We toured the archeological museum, did banking and had a wonderful dinner. The Paseo is worth the visit, regardless of your intentions.
