The Sunday Traveler~Merida

The Sunday Traveler visited Merida in late September this year, a first for me in this part of Mexico, Yucatán. Merida is so much more than I had anticipated; the capital of the state of Yucatán, with a population of a little over one million people.

No sleepy little fishing village here, but a vibrant, bustling community of food, art, museums and shopping.

It was delightful to walk around the downtown’s main boulevard and stop in at a street cafe for nourishment. And to watch the street scene.

Merida has some beautifully old buildings, especially here on the Main Street

You’ll notice the palm trees. Merida is very tropical, was very hot and humid while I was here, and is said to improve slightly in the winter months when the temperature might plummet into the 70s during the day. Merida is twenty two miles inland from the coast of the Gulf of Mexico.

Next up I’ll focus a bit more on downtown, the cathedral, and a bit on the food. In the meantime, I hope you all have a good holiday.

Hasta luego.

    They must love their watermelon in Merida, to put up such a statue.
