white city tour
In the final decades of the 19th century, Yucatán experienced a period of economic prosperity due to the boom of the henequen industry (Sisal fiber, the green gold), making Merida in on of the richiest cities of Mexico.
Touring around Merida, we will visit some of those amazing mansions and building that are testimony of that period
In the past decades the city has been experimenting an architectural renaissance, due the rescue and remodelation of old colonial houses, conserving their historic with modern architecture details or designs.
Merida is not all about colonial architecture as you will see. Also you cant miss the museums and galleries to get a glimpse of the art & culture typical from the Yucatan region
Be prepared with your camera ready while walking in centro, as magic places appears at every corner.
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 cantinas at centro . Get ready to have some fun.
Merida has repeatedly ranked as a top city in security and progress in Mexico. This year Merida was ranked as the city with the best quality life in Mexico according to an UN study. Come and see why!
