On December 10, The City of Mérida, in alliance with the Cooperative of Tourist Guides of Yucatan (Cooperativa de Guías de Turistas de Yucatán), inaugurated the new walking tours of Paseo de Montejo, in order to promote this emblematic avenue.
Accompanied by municipal authorities and staff of the nearby hotels, the first guided tour of Paseo de Montejo was inaugurated on Monday December 10, 2018.
The route departing point is the Town Hall’s tourist information module located right on the corner of Paseo de Montejo with Avenida Colón, in the heart of Merida’s “Hotel Zone”.
The director of Economic and Tourism Development of the City of Mérida, Eduardo Seijo Solís; assistant director, Ana Gabriela Echeverría Solís; the head of Tourist Attention, Maria Teresa Gamboa, and the president of the Cooperative of Tourist Guides of Yucatan, Francisco González Hernández, were present at the inauguration event.
Seijo Solís said that this tour was created with the promotion of the Paseo de Montejo in mind, since there are tourists who come to Mérida, stay in one of the hotels in the area, and although they are literally just steps away from this iconic avenue, do not visit it because it has not been properly promoted.
The official added that the hotels have an important role in this strategy and that the Cooperative of Tourist Guides of Yucatan is collaborating with the project as social work.
The tours will take place every day at 5:30 in the afternoon until December 29th, but they are expected to become permanent in the near future. The tours last 90 minutes, are conducted in English and Spanish, have no cost and will go from the Monument to the Homeland to “El Remate” on the corner of Calle 45 with Paseo de Montejo.
