Few places on the Yucatán Peninsula are more worthy of a long weekend than Mérida, the region’s largest city and capital of Yucatán State. Also known as the White City, Mérida is an expat favorite slowly finding fame with visitors from outside of the region—and for good reason.
Low prices, fantastic cuisine, and year-round hot and humid weather make Mérida the ideal weekend escape. Throw in the city’s proximity to some of the area’s cutest beach towns and most significant archaeological ruins—Chichén Itzá, anyone?—as well as a clutch of upscale dining options and you’re onto a winner. Here’s how to get the most out of Mérida, even with just 72 hours to spare.
After arriving at Mérida’s international airport—which fields direct flights from both the U.S. and Canada—take a taxi straight to your downtown hotel.
While there are a bunch of boutique (and plenty of budget) accommodation options in the historic center, Casa Mexilio is perhaps one of the most conveniently located hotels in Mérida, ideal for visitors who don’t have much time to spare.
