Yucatan's busy capital, Merida remains a mid-sized urban center offering an impressive list of cultural activities, eclectic nightlife, and a chance to see tropical examples of French and Italian architecture.
Visit Celestun and Isla Arena (Isla del Sabalo) for some beach relaxation. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gran Museo del Mundo Maya and Dzibilchaltún. Venture out of the city with trips to Celestun (Mangroves of Dzinitun & Ria Celestun Biosphere Reserve), Hacienda Yaxcopoil (in Yaxcopoil) and Chichen Itza (The Ossuary, Chichen Itza, & more).
