2022-08-22 | merida
By staying in one of the many beautiful Merida hotels you will be able to enjoy various activities and visit tourist sites that are located in the vicinity of the hotel, in such a way that your trip will become a rewarding experience , a moment to discover new adventures and learn every day. Thus, we will share with you some of the wonderful things that you’ll have the opportunity to do out in the white city, and without having to invest large amounts of money!
Every Monday night there is a representation of the "vaquería" in the basement of the Municipal Palace, a spectacle that seeks to recreate one of the most traditional festivals in Yucatan, which originated from the colonial period. These are typical dances that demonstrate the beautiful customs, costumes of the region and other milestones that marked the city, allowing people not only to have fun but also to learn a little about the history of the place.
So, if you plan to visit Mérida during your vacations or you are staying in one of the hotels in this beautiful city, we recommend that on Monday at 9:00 p.m. you go to the basement of the Municipal Palace and enjoy the typical melodies of the region, which will be accompanied by dances and traditional Yucatan costumes, alongside your family or friends.
On Tuesdays you will have the opportunity to choose between two activities: musical reminiscences or trova and folklore nights; each one of them allows you to get closer to the city and its customs, highlighting its music, culture, dances and gastronomy. The first mentioned presentation takes place in Parque de Santiago, which is located near most of the Merida hotels.
The musical remembrances are a group of traditional rhythms that include dances, chachachá, rumbas and mambos, which begin to play at 8:30 p.m., gathering tourists and residents to enjoy a pleasant night, where they have the opportunity to dance, meet new people and let themselves be carried away by the typical melodies of the region.
On the other hand, if you want to spend a romantic evening or feel attracted to the traditional trovas of the Yucatan region, we recommend that you attend the Auditorium of the Olimpo Cultural Center on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m., where you can enjoy music and poetry. Both spaces will provide you with unforgettable experiences to relax and have fun.
Every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. a video-mapping expo is carried out on the façade of Casa Montejo, where the history of Mérida is told, and the colonization process is reflected on. It is a show of lights, melodies and stories, which allows you to get closer to the city and its customs, taking into account the conquest of Yucatan.
If the romantic evening on Tuesday was not enough, on Thursdays you will also have the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful serenade in the Parque de Santa Lucía, where several troubadours gather to transmit their melodies and poetry. So if you are staying in one of the historic center hotels in Merida and you don't know what to do at night, this is definitely the most appropriate plan.
Every Friday at 8:00 p.m. in the Cathedral of Mérida you will be able to appreciate the show of Sacred Stones, where the façade of the religious building represents animated artistic forms in 3D and 2D that summarize the history of this church that was built on the stones of Thó, an ancient Mayan city. This graphic representation is accompanied by a poetic narrative, music and choirs.
On Saturdays you will also be able to watch two presentations, the first one takes place in front of the Cathedral of San Ildefonso at 8:00 p.m., where Pok Ta Pok is recreated, one of the ball games practiced by the Maya. In the second room, there is a famous event known as "Mexican night" that takes place in the Paseo de Montejo Auction, where traditional costumes, dances and music of the region are taught.
“Pok Ta Pok is one of the ball games practiced by the Mayas.”
To end the week, from 8:00 AM to noon you will be able to enjoy a bicycle route through the most emblematic street of Mérida, Paseo de Montejo, where you will have the opportunity to visualize the colonial architecture and the different expressions of Yucatecan culture. It is a free event ideal for all kinds of public and that is close to all hotels in Merida.
