Many beautiful buildings from late nineteenth century when the city boomed with the oro verde. Take a look particularly north of calle 37.

During our week in Merida, we walked on the Paseo de Montejo on three occasions although we were staying further away in the Centro. We enjoyed strolling on the wider streets looking at some of the historic buildings after hours of walking on the narrow sidewalks in the old part of the city. This is a good place to find... More

We were fortunate to find a relatively inexpensive and very comfortable condo to rent for a month just two blocks off Paseo. Every day without exception included walking in one direction or another, and wherever we were heading we enjoyed the journey. During the heat of the day, Paseo's many trees provide cooling shade, and the sidewalk's width make it... More

A beautiful broad avenue lined with trees and mansions from Merida's heyday, which it is a pleasure to walk down, even on a hot day, unlike the narrow overcrowded streets of the city centre. Part of Merida's claim to old-world elegance.

Gorgeous architecture, cafés, boutiques, a couple of museums, lots of benches to rest and watch people stroll by, most of it is shaded by large trees so you can walk without burning underneath the hot Yucatan sun.

A wide treed boulevard with two great museums, several monuments and many up-scale restaurants and shops. Every Sunday it is closed off for family bike rides. Venders along the way add a carnival atmosphere.
