Gay clubs, friendly bars and monthly gay parties

Merida Gay Scene is very spreaded throughout the city, there is no ghetto here (but, we are everywhere) , non the less we have several options when it comes to have fun and mingle,  some of them are gay friendly and are meeting point for the community, from  electronic clubs to centro´s cantinas, and others are strictly gay. Besides those there are underground monthly gay parties that have become very popular. Other monthly gay parties are done at beautiful colonial houses.

Cantinas = music = mezcal = fun

A good way to get to know Merida and its people is trought cantinas, which are popular bars with regional music, usually very pintoresque, very loudy, very animated people dancing, sometimes kitschy…. very mexican. Cantinas are also a meeting point for local gays, since in the last decades cantinas became more and more popular for the young people (back to basics). 

Cantinas start early, so people can have fun after work. They are located in old colonial houses, so is a round mexican experience. 

In this tour, we will take you through 4 of the best and new cantinas at centro. Get ready to have some fun.
