Experience Merida with us

Sights of old and new, blend of originality and tradition, mixture of elegance and magnificence – you are in Merida, the colonial jewel of Mexico. Renowned as the White City, thanks to its opulent white stone mansions, Merida is a melting pot of cultures, history, art and traditions. In its cobbled streets and impressive colonial buildings, you’ll find a pinch of Mayan influences and a feel of travelling back in time. To begin your exploration of Merida, first check out its colonial heritage. What better place to begin than Plaza Grande or the central plaza? You’ll be overwhelmed by the impressive size of the plaza, dominated by the Catedral de San Idelfonso. Across from the Cathedral, you’ll find the Municipal Palace and the stunningly attractive Government Palace. The Government Palace is home to murals and paintings that depict the rich Mayan history of the region. At the Paseo de Montejo, you’ll see why Merida is called the White City. On both sides of this tree-lined boulevard, there are gleaming white stoned homes and mansions that emit opulence. One of these buildings is Museo de Antropologia (Museum of Anthropology). Here, you’ll find fine artefacts of the Mayan period and other collectibles displaying the history of the region. Merida has a well-deserved place of honour within Mexican gastronomy. Such is the attraction of Meridan cuisine, that gastronomy tours to Merida are a rage. On these tours, you get to enjoy the area’s finest cuisine in authentic and charismatic colonial settings. The gleaming white town of Meridia will give you numerous occasions to gleam with joy, surprise and wonder at colonial and Mayan treasures and Mexican hospitality. One liner: See the colonial White City and take a gastronomy tour.
