Small gem of a park, a block from the central square. Pleasant cafes where one could while away the hours talking or reading or just stop off for a quick refuel with excellent Yucatecan coffee. Do beware of touts. Sometimes even the waiters will suggest shops to visit. Just a courteous "maybe later" is enough to end those interactions if... More

I visited and passed by Parque Hidalgo on numerous occasions during my stay in Merida this past fall (November 18-23 and November 24-26). Parque Hidalgo is a lovely, small and quiet park located just one block north of the much larger and bustling Plaza Grande (situated at the corner of Calles 60 and 59 in Merida’s “centro historico”). There was... More

I used to visit Merida quite often, but hadn't been here for about 20 years. I was very disappointed in the increased traffic and difficulty walking about town. The two central squares are still great for enjoying the people watching, but the sprawl, makes it difficult to use Merida as a center for visiting the state of Yucatan. The Paseo... More

A tall monument, central to the park, is dedicated to General Manuel Cepeda Peraza. It is surrounded by benches, Meridian love seats and elaborate French colonial mansions. It, like most of Merida’s parks, offers free Wi-Fi to those in it. One night as we sat admiring yet another beautiful park, we noticed a young Maya boy, maybe three years old,... More

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

Although it can be a bit noisy at times with the traffic and the locals selling their wears, this little park has a perfece location in front of three older hotels with sidewalk restaurants and shops surrounding it. Sit at one of the cafes and have a cool drink while watching the world go by. If you are there in... More

This square is lovely due to the large almond trees and palms, the abundance of seating, sidewalk restaurants and people moving around. We love to go set and enjoy something cool, listen to the live entertainment from one of the cafes, watch the hawkers selling fans and shawls and the general hubub of life. Yes, it is noisy but this... More
