Really helpful worth the effort

Excellent English language skills and a real desire to help tourists that is not always evident in tourist offices. Easy to find in the main zocalo.

Bureau of Tourism was extremely helpful. The individual booths located all over the city were a great help to my husband and myself. All questions were answered. My only complaint about the trip was that not one bank in Merida would exchange our American Express Travelers Checks. We do not like to charge our expenses and we felt uncomfortable carrying...

Well located; able to support us with a member of staff whose English was infinitely better than our Spanish. We found free music on in different places in the evening.

If you are looking for info about things to do in the Yucatan check this place out.If you want info though it's best to ask. Great spot to photograph at dusk and sunrise. The setting sun and the buildings lights create an excellent orange glow. Very friendly staff.

We stopped by the day before Paseo de las Animas and Hanal Pixan to grab anything they had. The gentlemen quickly rounded up a nice collection, including maps with event stages and schedules marked. Was extremely helpful the following night,

This office is clean, air conditioned and staffed by some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable Yucatecos in all of Mérida. In respect for the environment (and the maturing of the digital age), printed brochures are limited on display, but ask any of the counselors and they will be happy to share their wealth of knowledge. Most of them spoke... More

We don't give many excellents!! Most impressed with their knowledge and willingness to share information. We are travelling long term on a budget and the assistant was great with information on ways to see the sights using public transport. We have been to many tourist information offices in many countries and would say the Merida office is the best yet.... More

The free tour offered every morning at 9:30 was wonderful. About 90 min long, in English, the tour gave a true understanding of the rich history that surrounds the town center. Without this tour it's just another colonial square...with this tour, the town square comes alive. My your guide today was Eduardo...two thumbs up!
