Merida: Indulge In Beauty Of Plethora Of Attractions

Merida is one of the coolest places to visit in Mexico. However, many people tend to miss this when they choose a travel destination. Being the capital of Yucatan, it has retained much of the colonial charm. I found so many things to do here with or without kids. To say the truth it has something for everyone. As a matter of fact, it is simply great for all types of travelers. Here is my list of fun things you can do when you visit Merida.

  • Wander the historic center of the city

The best thing to do when you are here is to explore the historical center of the city. Plaza Grande is the epicenter where you can click photos to share on social media. When you go north, you will come across Parque de Santa Lucia. In the evening, you are going to find it filled with chairs and tables from the restaurants. However, if you have a less touristy experience then you should wander around a bit.

  • Chill in a Cenote

Merida is a great place to travel to but it might get very hot. Luckily, it is one of the best places on the planet to explore a cenote. These are actually limestone bedrocks of areas which lead you to an inviting and fresh pool of underwater. This was an awesome experience. You can relax and cool off on a hot sunny day. The stretch of cenotes close to Cuzama is really popular among the visitors.

  • Relax at Progresso Beach

In case you are tired of the hustle-bustle of the city, head to the fishing town of Progresso. It is along the Gulf of Mexico. The water might not be that clear but the sand is powdery and white. Moreover, beer, beach lounger, and lunch are going to cost you very little money.
