Caligula in the open air .Pity that it was so incredibly hot and that the producers put the actors in modern clothing rather than in togas !the theater itself is a gem

All of Merida is a wonderful Roman experience! Come during the theatre festival (July august) a watch a show in the Roman Theater. Simply magic

Fabulously preserved Roman ruins in the middle of Merida! No crowds seriously worth a visit to Merida just to visit Teatro Romano.

It was a boiling hot day when we visited the site but the quality of the preserved ruins was so remarkable we soon forgot how hot it was. A really well preserved and maintained site right in the middle of town. Remarkable.

I love Merida and its roman ruins. The theatre is still in operation within the Merida festival. I thoroughly recommend it.

Hi Greg - just seen this question so I hope it's not too late. The museum is well worth a visit as well as the ruins, so I would say 1.5 days to see everything comfortably and 1 day if you rush!

As most people have recommended, I would agree that an overnight stay is worth it. There are many things to see and do and obviously trying the local food is part of the experience of travel. Enjoy!

The roof is missing, the beds have gone and the swim rooms dried out 2000 years ago.
