Tours in the Mérida Region, Mexico

Culture, Archaeology & Nature


Mérida, a city of about 1 million people, is a wonderful mixture of colonial city and cosmopolitan destination. Yucatán – Merida’s home state - is one of Mexico's most tranquil and safest states, with a climate resembles that of Florida or Cuba. Yucatecans are good, tranquil and hospitable people who have strong roots and traditions. They take pride in their city, known as "The White City", not only for the predominance of white limestone as a building material, but because of its streets, plazas and parks that are cleaned daily. With Mérida as your base, you can visit cathedrals and churches, Mayan ruins, museums, haciendas and cenotes.
