We started at plaza grande and rode the carriage the entire route on Paseo de Montejo. It is a beautiful trip and we would do it again.

This city was an henequen power at the beginning of the XX century and on and around the Paseo de Montejo are the houses that show it. Henequen is a natural fiber used to make ropes and cords, and at its height Merida shipped it around the world. The "hacendados" were the ones that produced and/or sold this and their... More

Our guide-books led us to believe that this would be pleasant to stroll along, and lined with sculptures and amazing mansions. There are a few interesting mansions, including the Museo de Antropologia (closed when we arrived due to an electrical fault, with no info on when it might re-open) and a couple of sculptures, but unless it's a Sunday, it's...

Too much history to ignore...a fascinating stroll, do it on Sunday when they close the paseo to traffic! Many places to stop for a coffee, ice cream or other foods!

Merida is one of the safest cities in Mexico. After a nice dinner walking very close to midnight you saw a good number of families eaten or walking around.

It's historic all right and the prettiest street in Merida for sure. Based on the colonial style, you step into a world that is so different from the rest of Merida... a pretentious one. I lived right off Paseo Montejo and it provided some average-good eats, and decent shopping. There are a couple of cool museums... but it's just a... More
