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

A small park but loaded with action.....restaurants, street vendors, couples and families walking. Grab a bench and watch the world go by.

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 !
