Our Guide to Merida, Mexico On a Budget

Our Guide to Merida, Mexico On a Budget, Merida, Mexico (B)

Mérida, Mexico is a vibrant travel destination in the Yucatan peninsula. The city has a rich cultural life, with frequent community events; dining and amenities for both budget and luxury travelers; and is conveniently located near ancient archeological sites, cenotes (underground rivers), and beaches.

We decided to stay in Mérida for three weeks at the start of the year, thanks to a recommendation from our well-traveled friends. We were impressed with the many cultural events, colorful exterior walls and secret interior courtyards, grand colonial buildings, affordable eateries, and proximity to Mayan ruins. Although it was “winter,” temperatures still reached the high 90’s on occasion, but most days were pleasantly warm – a welcome relief from the snowpocalypse taking place in our home state of Oregon!

Although this is by no means an exhaustive guide to Mérida, it covers pretty much everything we did during our stay. 

(Shout out to Roaming Around the World for their informative guide to Mérida that tipped us off to all the free weekly events!) ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
