Having fun and finding beauty, even during a pandemic, is easy and affordable to do in and around Merida. Here are five suggestions.
1. Take a Walk
Merida is a great city for walking especially in the Centro or Paseo Montejo áreas.
2. Explore Mayan History and Culture
Chichen Itza is just one of many ancient Mayan heritage sites in the area. Get a good guide and learn more about this beautiful culture.
3. Visit a Cenote
If you do nothing else, visit at least one of these magical and sacred natural water filled sink holes.
4. Go Looking for Iguanas
These dragon like creatures are all over the city, especially in parks. I love trying to spot them as they are shy and blend in well with their surroundings.
5. Cool Off with a Day at the Beach or a Pool!
Merida is 🔥 HOT! There are lovely beaches less than 30 minutes away and many local hotels allow you to come swim, better yet…get an apartment with a pool!
