Great fun ! Get there early to get a seat as once it gets going it's standing room only. The singers soon have the crowd singing along and every one young and old joins in. Even if the songs and music style aren't normally your thing you get caught up in it all. The dancing was very good too and... More

While visiting Merida, I found that this is a weekly gig that is free to see and is not super crowded. Family friendly and a bit of local culture and tradition for anyone needing to fill up some of their early evening agenda.. Check it out!

There are a number of food stands, but wait for Sabrina to set up at the very far end of the line, closest to the stage. I didn't see a sign, but from word of mouth, I knew if was hers. Get the choriso or chicharron, sit down and soak in the atmosphere.

You will find food vendors, jewelry vendors and more that line the pavement before you reach the stage area where the night's performers will entertain. The show features a wide variety of music, songs and dances from old Mexican traditions with modern influences. Often the soloists garner the crowd's full attention.

We had supper by the square. As we were dining, the restaurant and outdoor food stalls were setting up tables outside. There were about twenty vendors and stalls selling jewelry, belts, toys and clothes. The entertainment this particular night was uninspiring, which was a surprise, as the entertainment in the other squares has been wonderful.

Kind of a "Mexican Lawrence Welk" quality to the show, but tremendous enthusiasm and it is clear that this is as much or more for those who live in Merida as it is for tourists. Fun!

This event was right outside of our hotel, what a great way to spend a Saturday night and meet the local people. The atmosphere was very family friendly and enjoyable.

Saturday night and the music was great. Some good vendors and great place to buy tacos al pastor. We were staying at Casa Ana which is a short walk from the park. It was a little different from the Domingo en Merida as there were groups singing as well as dancing. If you are staying down town walk home on... More

Merida is a special place where there is always some sort of cultural event going on every night. On Saturday night, the event of the day is Noche Mexicana, which takes place at the park at the beginning of the Paseo de Montejo. The festivities start at 8 pm, but I would definitely recommend getting there early for two reasons:... More
