Beautiful little park

This small green space is in a corner of the plaza central and has a few statues and nice buildings surrounding it. Come check it out and relax.

This small park is very close to Plaza Grand. Several older hotels are right there and some small,sidewalk-style cafes as well. There is more seating than typical at parks of this size and the almond trees provide a substantial amount of shade. It was a nice place to sit, have a cool drink and people watch after our time in... More

This square is lovely due to the large almond trees and palms, the abundance of seating, sidewalk restaurants and people moving around.

Yes, it is noisy but this... More

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 !
