When we talk of exploring Yucatan, Merida is the starting point to get to know all the routes of the Mayan world.
For 500 years Merida forged its vocation of great metropolis and departure point for the exploration of Yucatan.
Founded on the Mayan city of Tho, after being colonized during the conquest it became the city of the Spanish government.
Currently, with its museums, parks, markets and outdoor cafes, Merida is a fascinating and cosmopolitan place, with its more than 900.000 inhabitants, mostly descendants of the Spanish and the Mayas.
