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.
