Customer Travel Tip: I would recommend staying Merida for a few days to really enjoy all Merida has to offer. The market and music in the Grand Plaza on Sundays was fun and the street in front of the plaza was closed so people could dance in the streets. On Tuesday nights from 8:30 to 10pm, there was live music in a smaller square called Santiago. On Thursday night, there are live trova performance in a small square near the main plaza. And if you want some good local food, the Chaya Maya had excellent food for a good price. My favorite was the pollo pibil. It can actually be shared by two people.

Liked: Merida was one of my favorite destinations in the Yucatan area. It had so many cultural activities for free or at a minimal cost. You could also take many day tours from the city center. The public transportation was inexpensive and convenient and the city was easily walkable. Super clean and friendly. I stayed for two weeks and was never bored.

Disliked: There was nothing I disliked about Merida!

Customer Travel Tip: Get your accommodation few blocks out of the city centre and you will find some peace while visiting Merida. 3-4 days is long enough stay to explore the essential sights in Merida. Progreso is a good day trip destination.

Liked: Easy to get in by bus and seems quite safe. Yucatan food is great!

Disliked: Very heavy traffic with pollution and smog. Not relaxed city at all. Narrow side walks often in terrible state. Not very clean city. Small city with big city problems.
