Every time my family and I travel to Mérida, a long, relaxing walk along the Paseo de Montejo is a must. Apart from enjoying the view of the imponent houses, you can eat an ice cream, shop at Walmart, Chedraui or at Oxxo (a convinience...More

We walked this street to get to downtown Mérida and were mesmerized by the beauty of its buildings. And I loved the broad sidewalks!!

On Sunday morning, Paseo de Montejo is closed to traffic so locals and visitors can walk, skate, and bicycle without traffic. It's a nice walk with beautiful buildings to admire and places to stop for breakfast or a cup of coffee. You can rent bicycles...More

A walk down Paseo de Montejo is a must while in Merida and if you’re really lucky you’ll get to see the trees all flowering, a truly wonderful sight. It is lined by spectacularly beautiful 19th century mansions which were owned by Merida’s elite and...More

Visiting Merida is like traveling in time. Taking a walk the "Paseo de Montejo" is a lovely experience and I highly recommend to do it on a Sunday morning since it is closed for cars and only open for pedestrians and cyclists. The street has...More

Strolling down Pasejo de Montejo is like stepping back into an elegant past. The tree lined streets, quaint eateries and diverse strollers makes you feel light hearted and comfortable. It makes very little difference the time of day of your stroll. There is always something...More

This street was wonderful, full of interesting old mansions, pricey boutiques, and interesting restaurants. On Sunday mornings it's open only to pedestrians, cyclists, skaters and the like. I much prefer it that way.

We have lived here a long time and would never bike here. There are accidents every day from cars hitting cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists. However, Sunday mornings, I think from 9am-noon or so, a portion of Paseo... More
