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 store). Also you can fin hostals and hotels nearby this avenue and it is not so far from downdown Mérida. The cathedral, the Main Square and and many other historical buidings are withing walking distance.

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 or bicycle carts very reasonably.

Just take a walk along this magnificent street and be delighted by the beautiful houses, many of which are museums, boutique hotels, stores and much 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 many of which have thankfully been restored and converted into banks, museums or high-end stores.

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 some of the most iconic buildings and monuments of the city and stretches roughly 6 km from the monument til just south of the Mayan Museum (Gran Museo Maya).

Not as many mansions as we expected. Certainly overblown French opulence to demonstrate wealth and taste (or not). Can’t help remembering the plantations owners who built these statements to wealth and power basically enslaved the Maya. Remember history so we dont repeat. Restoration is a good thing and we support that provided the truth is not swept under the carpet. In passing one of us desperately needed a banos and nowhere would give us access before midday except the Posheria, an organic shop who happily gave us access. Thank you Posheria and we bought their organic coffee.

A little far from the center of the city but nice to see. Wide avebue and a lot of space to walk. Many italian restaurants and ice cream shops here.

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 interesting to see or do. Visit a museum or colonial mansion, eat local and international cuisine, go bike riding on Sunday closed to traffic streets, bar and pub hop, salsa in several nightclubs, shop at the funky clothing and crafts shops, and stop to chat with friendly locals, international travelers from all over the world and members of the growing Expat’s community.

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.
