This small park is very close to Plaza Grand. Several older hotels are right there and some small,sidewalk-style cafes as well.

A good landmark when walking around Merida central and also has places to take a coffee and just chill out watching people come and go. There are some hawkers and a statue there as well if you want something to do.

Take a couple of hours to walk downtown Merida. La Plaza Grande, el Parque Hidalgo, el Parque de la Madre y el Parque de Santa Lucia are all a hundred meters from each other, next to beautiful churches, quaint parks with century old trees. You'll be enriched by the experience !
