A gorgeous setting for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Tables outside hotels and cafe's line two sides and it's nice and shady to escape the heat. Super friendly staff that even called a friend who came to meet me to take me on a tour!

Merida has many nice parks but this one is very large and is surrounding by a bunch of historical buildings. Make it part of your walking tour especially to stop for a refreshment.

A very nice quiet place but just a short distance from the Central Plaza and Santa Lucia Park. A few vendors and artwork but no hustle about it.

As many have noted, this is a peaceful spot surrounded by some lovely hotels with outdoor restaurants and a pub. I Often came here, just a block or two from Plaza Grande, to avoid the masses and chaos there. Be sure to go inside the hotels to check out the architecture; we asked as we entered each (with cameras) and... More

If you are a people watcher - you will love this little park in the center of Merida. The benches are are not that great but if the weather is nice, I could spend a lot of time in this little park just watching all the different people pass by. A great place to 'rest' if you are on vacation... More

Because we stayed here Friday to Sunday there was always something going on in the park. Music, markets wonderful. Our hotel opened onto the park so it was easy to find our way back each time we ventured out.

I love Merida's green spaces -- the neighborhood parks in the historic center are great places to stop and relax between jaunts from one place to another. Hidalgo is very near the main plaza but a bit quieter. It's cool and shady. There are several good places to eat nearby. Shops to explore after you've rested. The surrounding architecture and...

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
