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. Most days were pleasantly warm – a welcome relief from the snowpocalypse taking place in our home state of Oregon!

Although this is not an exhaustive travel guide of things to do in Mérida, it covers our top recommendations based on things we did during our stay.
