Looking for a relaxing place to see great architecture, roam colonial streets, eat wonderful local foods, and infuse yourself with local color? Then the city of Merida, in the state of Yucatan in Mexico, is just the place for you. Only one of the great ways to experience all these things is a weekly event that every visitor to Merida should experience at least once.
You are sure to make many new friends, whether they be ex-pats also out to enjoy the morning, Spanish-speaking locals and tourists, or families from all over this huge globe. You will marvel at the architecture of the many historic homes lining the boulevard, some of which are open to the public as museums and other public spaces. You’ll pick up a few new Spanish words, drop a few pounds, and gain new insight into what it might be like to live in this wonderful, historic city with its lovely, welcoming inhabitants.
