“Merida's Beautiful Boulevard”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Strolling along Paseo Montejo is a trip back in time. Much of the boulevard is lined with fabulous homes, or quintas, formerly the in-town getaways of the hennequin plantation owners. Some have been thoughtfully restored, others languish in varying states of repair and still others are now commercial establishments. On Sundays, it is closed to vehicular traffic and reserved for walkers, bicyclists, and horse-drawn carriages - a tranquil scene. It isn't Fifth Avenue in New York, nor the Champs d'Elysee of Paris (it reminded me of Andrassy in Budapest) , but it is a stunning reminder of Merida's long and rich history.

“nice for a horse drawn carriage ride”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

a beautiful tree lined street with historic buildings and monuments. A great location to take a ride in a horse drawn carriage. There is an area with a market as well and weekly evening shows

“Don't get it”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This street could be so much more, just drive trough it, that's enough. Finding a horse drawn buggy on it is hard, you have to catch them at the Zocalo apparently.
