Historic Center of Mérida

Mérida, known as "the White City," stands out for being a city full of peace, tranquility, and friendly, hospitable people. It's the ideal place for those who want to spend a vacation in a relaxed atmosphere with warm weather. Mérida was founded on January 6, 1542, and built on the Maya city of Toh. In the surroundings of its Plaza Grande, you can see reflected the history, influence, and culture.

We recommend starting your visit in the city center at the Zócalo, commonly called "Plaza Grande" by the locals. From here, you can find the main buildings of the city such as museums, theaters, churches, markets, typical food restaurants, craft shops, and above all, enjoy interacting with its inhabitants.

In addition to being the center that connects to all other municipalities of the State, from this point, you can take buses, taxis, or tours that will take you to discover its Magical Towns of Izamal, Valladolid, Maní, Sisal, Espita, Motul, and Texak, Beaches, Archaeological Sites, Cenotes, and even to other neighboring states such as Quintana Roo and Campeche.
